Ingredients
  • 4 plum tomatoes, halved lengthwise
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • Kosher or sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 8 1/2 -inch-thick slices baguette, cut on the bias
  • 1 clove garlic
Directions

Preheat the oven to 275 degrees. Place the tomatoes cut-side up in a shallow baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper and the thyme. Roast 1 hour 30 minutes to 2 hours, or until the tomatoes are very soft and slightly shrunken.
