Roasty Tomato Toasty

Hey folks!  Yes, it has been a few weeks (cough, months...cough), but I am finally back with a tasty post on toast – the go-to meal when everything else seems so complicated, takes forever, needs a bazillion ingredients, and, well, you get the point.  Simple.  Tasty.  Toast.

So how does one make a roasty tomato toasty?  Read on...


  • roma tomatos (1 tomato per slice of toast...cut them into quarters)
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • goat cheese for schmearing
  • fresh basil or any fresh herb...chives are great here, too.
  • bread

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Line a cookie sheet (or a cake pan) with foil for easy cleanup.  Cut tomatoes into quarters length-wise (sounds fancy, right?).  Place tomatoes on cookie sheet and drizzle with olive oil.  Add salt and pepper to taste – don't skimp!

Place in oven for 25 minutes or so.  Meanwhile, take the goat cheese out of the fridge to soften up.  This makes schmearing a lot easier.

Remove tomatoes from oven to let cool a minute.  Pop your toast in the toaster.  Once toast is done, schmear with cheese, add tomatoes, and top with fresh herbs of your choice.

Now that I have insulted your culinary abilities, let me remind you that no one is "above" eating toast.
Even Jesus likes toast.  BOOM.
