Welcome to My Hungry Boys where I share what I love to cook for my husband and our four sons.   I've made a lot of food over the years and I've learned a lot in the process. 

Roasted Grape Tomatoes

Roasted Grape Tomatoes

I like to roast my grape tomatoes with a pat of butter and a sprinkle of sugar because they aid the browning process, but you can omit them if you want.

  • 1 pound grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter (omit if vegan)
  • pinch sugar (optional)
  • kosher salt to taste

Preheat oven to 400°F.  Pour olive oil onto a half sheet pan, and heat in oven for a few minutes (don't allow it to smoke).  Slice tomatoes in half.  Place butter in pan and swirl to melt.  Spread tomatoes, a pinch of sugar, and salt in pan, stirring to coat.  Place in top rack of oven, stirring every 5-10 minutes.  Roast until soft and beginning to brown around the edges (~25 minutes).

Ready for the oven.

Ready for the oven.
