Take it up a Notch

I had a little extra time this morning to prepare breakfast and decided to take it up a notch. Along with my crispy streaky bacon and eggs poached in butter and bacon fat I made a side of balsamic roasted tomatoes and onion rings.

It was so simple to prepare just need a little time for it to roast away in the oven and let the flavours infuse.

I preheated the oven to 200°c and drizzled my tray with a lil olive oil. Sliced a brown onion into 4 rounds and lay them on the oil.

Next I sliced two organic tomatoes in half and also took a little off the back so the halves would sit flat. I placed these onto the onion rounds.

On to the tomato I spread some freshly crushed garlic, next a good screw of black pepper and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and olive oil.

It’s that simple. The onion acts like a trivet to stop the bottom of the tomato burning while the rest roasts to perfection. The juices of the tomato in turn flow down and caramelise with the onion rings below. A marriage made in heaven!

Roast your little babies in the oven until you can’t resist the aromas any longer.
