Equipment

  • Oven
  • brush

Ingredients
  

  • 1 pkg grape tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup olive oil extra virgin
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • Pinch pepper
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil cut into strips
  • 1/2 baguette sliced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil for brushing bread
  • 1 garlic clove cut in half
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated

Instructions
 

  • Place grape tomatoes into a small bowl and drizzle olive oil on top. Add salt and pepper. Mix gently with a spoon until all the tomatoes are covered in oil.
  • On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, place grapes evenly dispersed on the pan.
  • Bake at 400 degrees F for 20 min.
  • While the tomatoes are baking, slice half of the baguette. Brush each piece of baguette with olive oil on one side.
  • Once the tomatoes are finished baking, preheat the oven to broil on high.
  • Broil the bread for 1-2 min, watch carefully. Only toast them until your desired doneness.
  • Place the tomatoes into a small bowl and add fresh cut basil. Mix them together with a spoon.
  • After the bread has finished toasting, rub each piece of bread with the ½ garlic. This gives it just a hint of garlic flavor, without being overpowering.
  • Add tomato mixture onto the bread pieces.
  • Top with freshly grated parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.
