This candied tomato bruschetta is a definite unique item to serve at a tea party! Have you ever had caramelized tomatoes before? They are delish!
The first time I tasted this recipe for candied tomato bruschetta, I thought it was tomato jam. When I served it at my tea party, people said it tasted like strawberries! It is definitely a surprise to the taste buds and is so easy to make.
You can serve them warm or cold. I opted to serve them cold at my tea party. To make this, you will need to slice 8 Roma tomatoes. You also want to remove as much as you can of the juice and seeds.
Next, you are going to cook the tomato slices in a skillet with some sugar and butter for about 10 minutes. Add in a little salt and pepper and allow the tomatoes to cook a little longer until the tomatoes are soft and the mixture has thickened.
Next you take some baguette slices and spread some spreadable cream cheese on each slice. Then top with those cooked tomatoes. At this point you can serve as is. Or you can place them on a baking sheet and broil until the cream cheese is soft and golden.
