Roasted Cherry Tomato Ciabatta Bread

Roasted Cherry Tomato Ciabatta Bread is the summer side you won’t think twice about the carbs because of how fresh and light it is. This is a delicious twist and update to the ol’ garlic bread recipe. Cherry tomatoes have been going nuts this year and I have an over abundance that I can’t use fast enough. So roasted cherry tomatoes are going on EVERYTHING! And I’m not mad about it.

If roasting cherry tomatoes aren’t my favorite cooking method, then I don’t know what is. You’ll find that a lot of my recipes start with roasting cherry tomatoes and garlic together and putting them on everything. Salad, pasta, bread, grilled meats. You name it and roasted cherry tomatoes will go with it.

I buy bulk cherry tomatoes from Costco when they’re not in season in Montana. I find they never go to waste. If you can’t find cherry tomatoes then grape tomatoes work just as good.

Serve this bread at your next bbq gathering and I promise it’ll be the hit of the dinner.
