Roasted Tomato Bruschetta. Roasting the tomatoes intensifies their flavour and brings out the natural sweetness. A perfect flavour combination with goat cheese and balsamic reduction.
This roasted tomato bruschetta is one of my all time favourite appetizers or hors d’oeuvres. It’s even delicious as a great simple lunch. The reason it is so good is because it relies on simple, highly flavourful ingredients that compliment each other very well.
This is a favourite recipe and we serve it often when the summer tomatoes are at their best. It’s a simple thing that Spouse makes all the time, especially when we are entertaining friends.

- 6 medium vine ripened tomatoes diced
- 2 cloves minced garlic
- 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt
- ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- ¼ cup of balsamic vinegar
- 1 package goat cheese
Toss together all of the ingredients except the balsamic vinegar in a shallow baking dish and bake at 350 degrees F for about an hour stirring occasionally until most of the liquid has reduced off the tomatoes are the consistency of jam. The time will vary depending upon the water content in the tomatoes.
Toast small slices of baguette and warm the goat cheese in a 300 degree oven. (Do not try to warm goat cheese in the microwave.)
Spread the goat cheese on the toasted baguette and top with a little of the tomato jam or just present the jam, goat cheese and toasts separately on a serving platter or individual plates as an appetizer and let your guests assemble the Bruschetta themselves.
In a very small saucepan boil ¼ cup of balsamic vinegar until it reduces and begins to thicken to a syrupy consistency. Drizzle the balsamic reduction over the Bruschetta.
