  17. TOPPING: Candied Cherry Tomatoes


  1. For Candied Cherry Tomatoes, Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cut tomatoes in half and place into a bowl.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and toss with tomatoes to coat.
  4. Place tomatoes onto a rimmed baking pan with a silpat liner on the bottom (makes for easier clean up).
  5. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes until roasted and carmelized.
  6. Note: Balsamic vinegar intensifies the flavor of the tomatoes and they taste sweet, almost like candy. Serve on crostinis, salads, etc. These tomatoes taste amazing as a topping on Farmers Market Pizza. Create your own topping for pizza using more Bluebird CSA farm fresh veggies including Vidalia onions, grilled squash & eggplant, colored bell peppers and more!
  7. For Farmers Market Pizza, Mix together all veggies in a bowl and add a few pinches of salt.
  8. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  9. Cut baguette into ¼" slices and place onto rimmed baking pan with a silpat liner on the bottom (makes for easier clean up) and spread a thin layer of pesto onto each slice.
  10. Bake for 5 – 6 minutes until lightly toasted.
  11. Place baguette slices onto a serving platter.
  12. Top each slice with a spoonful of veggie mixture and place a few candied cherry tomatoes on top.
  13. Delish! Use whatever veggies are in season. Broccoli, yellow squash and zucchini are very tasty to add into your veggie mix.
