Marinated and Roasted Cherry Tomatoes can be spendy, about a dollar per oz, that’s why I’m showing you how to make them yourself for 1/3 the cost. These are excellent in salads, sandwiches and in pasta. So if you’re interested in saving some money and treating yourself to one of life’s delicacies, try this recipe. I use them in my Waffle Iron Grilled cheese video recipe and my Portobello Caprese with Balsamic Glaze.
Uses for Cherry Roasted Tomatoes
Roasted Tomatoes are great in so many different recipes because they add that rich smokey flavor we all love from great barbecue. Other than the occasional sandwich, these make a great addition to salads, both green or pasta. Cold noodle salads are incredible with Roasted Tomatoes in them and other ingredients like pickled artichoke hearts and black olives. I love them in green salads that are light on the dressing and, again, heavy with pickled ingredients; Manzanilla Olives, Capers and Pepperonchini Peppers etc.. One of my absolute favorite ways to eat Cherry Roasted Tomatoes, though, is with cured meats, Crackers and Cheese.
This Waffle Iron Grilled Cheese Sandwich is FUN! It’s not as exciting, maybe, as a Panini but it’s not as boring as the original. I like to season my butter and occasionally mix in some veggies with my cheese. But you do what you want and I’ll show you how you should want to make your sandwich.
What to Expect
In this recipe I’m using Texas Toast for the bread, Mild Cheddar and Provolone Cheese and Marinated and seasoned dried Cherry Tomatoes. I think you’ll find that that these simple ingredients will really set the average grilled cheese on an entirely new level. The only problem is these tomatoes are a little spendy. But, in the very near future I’m going to show you how you can make these very easily right in your own kitchen. And it’s perfect timing for me because my garden is in full bloom right now. So I’ll get that going probably this next week.
