Roasted Tomatoes, Garlic, and Pearl Onions

Roasted Tomatoes, Garlic, and Pearl Onions are one of my favorite three amigos. This dish is so easy to make and yet so flavorful. Makes for an excellent breakfast, lunch, and or a side dish for dinner.  By roasting these three food staples with salt, pepper, dried oregano, lubed up with olive oil, doused in balsamic vinegar they caramelize and intensify in flavor.

Preheat oven to 300F. Cut tomatoes in half (or quarters), cut the stem part off of onion pearls, cut the top off of the garlic, drizzle with olive oil, a small amount of balsamic vinegar and then sprinkle with dried oregano, salt and pepper and roast for 2 hours.

With patience, you are rewarded with gorgeous juicy collapsed tomatoes, tender onions, and fragrant garlic that can be used in so many different ways.  Eat with bread and cheese, use in salads, serve as a side to meat and fish dishes, in sandwiches, with eggs and omelets. They will keep in the fridge for at least one week.

I highly recommend enjoying this dish with your favorite cheeses.
