SIMPLE Roasted Tomatoes and Goat Cheese Crostini

roasted tomato goat cheese crostini

These simple roasted tomatoes and goat cheese crostinis are an appetizer that can be made ahead of time.  The tomatoes (the bruschetta) can be made and refrigerated for up to 3 days.  Then when ready to assemble, just toast the bread for 8-10 minutes under the broiler.

Roasting the cherry tomatoes, along with some shallots and garlic, drizzled in olive oil really intensify their flavor.

This recipe does not require using goat cheese, so if that isn’t your thing, try brie or any other mild soft cheese to add to it.
