- 5 cups grape tomatoes, cut in half (or small tomatoes like Roma, cut into bite-size pieces)
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 450°. Chop tomatoes into bite-size pieces. Place in a greased glass baking dish. For faster preparation, I use a mixture of Roma and grape tomatoes as it takes less time to cut them up. I make this large quantity as it is wonderful for batch cooking and reheats well.
Mix garlic, brown sugar, vinegar, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Pour over tomatoes and mix until well coated. Bake at 450° for 30 minutes, or until tomatoes are bubbling and starting to brown on top. I either serve with a slotted spoon or pour the excess water out of the dish before serving. Either way, this side dish is simple and tastes great! I don’t worry too much about adding the brown sugar as it is spread among 5 cups of tomatoes. Enjoy!
