Simple Sides: Scallopped Tomatoes

Tomatoes are bursting from my garden almost faster than I can use them. During the summer months I’m always looking for ways to incorporate them into our meals from breakfast {SKILLET BAKED EGGS} to appetizers {CAPRESE SALAD ON ON A STICK} to everything in between. This is a super simple side dish that takes advantage of cherry and/or roma tomatoes. To be honest I like it so much I’d even eat it on it’s own but it pairs beautifully with fish and meat dishes.

What you’ll need:
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 cups crusty bread – cubed
2 1/2 pounds fresh roma/cherry tomatoes – diced
3 cloves garlic – minced
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup  fresh basil leaves, lightly packed – roughly chopped
1 cup Parmesan cheese – grated

What to do:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2. Heat olive oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Add bread cubes. Stir to coat with oil. Cook over medium to medium-high heat for 5 minutes, stirring often, until the cubes are evenly browned.

3. WHILE the bread is cooking, combine: tomatoes, garlic, sugar, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. When the bread cubes are browned, add  tomato mixture and continue to cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes. Remove pan from heat, add basil. Mix to combine.

4. Pour tomato mixture into a shallow {6-8 cup} oven proof baking dish. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes OR until the top is browned and the tomatoes are bubbly.
