French Bread w/ Goat Cheese and Oven Roasted Tomatoes

May 07, 11 French Bread w/ Goat Cheese and Oven Roasted Tomatoes

 

I get inspired to cook gourmet food when I dine out.  I recently went to a gourmet restaurant and was inspired to recreate one of their recipes, “French Bread w/ Goat Cheese and Oven Roasted Tomatoes”.  The best part of recreating this recipe is the Honey Balsamic Reduction for drizzling sauce.  The Honey Balsamic drizzle makes this recipe a delicious appetizer or lunch. You can also eat it alone or share it with your friend or loved ones.  Hope this recipe will inspire you to recreate your favorite restaurant recipes.

French Bread with Goat Cheese and Oven Roasted Tomatoes

Ingredients:

For Honey Balsamic reduction
1 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup honey
For French Bread with Goat Cheese and Oven Roasted Tomatoes
2 pints Sweet Baby Grape Tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon garden herb salt
2 tsp virgin Olive Oil
1 4oz goat cheese log
1 loaf French bread, sliced 1 1/2 inches thick
5 Kalamati Olives

 

Directions:

Wash tomatoes. Preheat oven to 400.  In mixing bowl, toss baby grape tomatoes with herbs and oil.  On roasting pan,  place baby grape tomatoes. Roast 30 minutes until tomatoes are tender stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, combine vinegar and honey in a small pan over medium-high heat and bring up to a bubble. Reduce heat to medium and cook vinegar and sugar until they’ve reduced by about half and are thick and syrupy liquid, about 10 minutes.

Place slices of bread in roasting pan and broil for 5-10 minutes until bread is toasted and light brown around the edges. Cut french bread in half lengthwise. Slice each half into 3 pieces and place close together on baking sheet. Broil 6 inches from heat 3 to 7 minutes, or until lightly browned.

Spread goat cheese on roasted french bread and pour roasted tomatoes over bread slices.   Add Kalamati Olives over bread. Add honey Balsamic Drizzle over bread.
