Oven Roasted Garden Tomatoes


This is a nice way to use up tomatoes from your garden!
Quick, easy and very yummy.
Lay thick sliced tomatoes on a parchment lined baking sheet.


Sprinkle generously with salt, sugar, Italian seasoning and garlic powder.
Drizzle with olive oil.



Bake 3 hours at 250 F degrees.
Beware, though, your house is going to smell wonderful!
I used them to top a pizza crust.  No sauce needed...just cheese!
I used a ready-to-bake crust and followed the baking directions on the package.




The flavor is intense and delicious.
These tomatoes are also wonderful chopped into pasta
or layered in sandwiches.  Enjoy!

  3. Your tomatoes are so deliciously RED!! (all over) Somehow our tomatoes ended up with one green side. What do you think that was from? My husband likes to bunch the plants altogether on the side of the house so that might be the problem. Perhaps not enough direct sunshine. Last year, the power gave out for a week and we lost all our tomatoes in the refrigerator. This year, they're partly green, as I mentioned. *sigh*...amateurs

    1. Oh, that's weird! I don't pick them until they are completely dark red and sometimes I have to wait until the green ripens around the stems but I've never heard of your problem! lol! Maybe it really is the sun....mine do get all day sun. I'm sure yours still taste good, though! I don't think I've ever had a bad summer tomato! ha.

  11. Hi Bets, looks great. Is slow roasting important? I normally roast at 400 degrees never over an hour but I've never roasted tomatoes.

    1. You know...I'm not sure! That's just what my recipe said. I bet you could do it at 400 but it wouldn't take long at all!

  13. Looks QUITE yummy. I'd try it, but we don't have any extra garden tomatoes this year. I don't think they set fruit when the temperatures are as hot as we've had this summer.

  16. What a great idea! I'm going to give this a try; I've never roasted tomatoes before. Perfect to put them on a pizza crust with LOTS of cheese. Mmmmm. Think I'll try adding in some fresh basil.

    1. Mmmmm...I think you'll love it! Basil is a great idea! We loved it so much last week that I have more in the oven today...a perfect Saturday night supper!
