I was scrolling through photos of our last cruise to Hawaii on the Grand Princess. I was trying to relieve the magic of cruising because our next cruise is many months away. I noticed on all of my breakfast photos I consistently have a roasted tomato on the plate. The original reason I added tomato was to add color to otherwise "brown" food. After a few breakfasts I fell in love with the sweet tasty morsels.
Breakfast Grand Princess Horizon Court Buffet
I've started making them at home. They are extremely easy to make. Roasting sweetens and intensifies the flavor. Good looking, ripe Windset Farms hot-house tomatoes were on sale at the local market. This method helps not so ripe toms too. I sliced them in half and laid them in a baking dish. Olive oil drizzle, salt, pepper and garlic powder is the complete ingredient list . Fresh chopped herbs would be a great addition. I roast them at 350 degrees. These toms took twenty minutes, but the time will vary depending on size and ripeness. A lovely breakfast to hold me until next cruise.
