"Succulent cherry tomatoes are baked with a sliver of garlic inside. Optionally drizzle with olive oil and/or sprinkle with salt. You may wish to serve these with toothpicks. Perfect for the party on the patio!" — HANNAHGIRL

These were delicious and a great side dish for grilled steak. I cut the tomatoes in half sprinkled them with minced garlic, olive oil and kosher salt along with some basil. I baked them until the skin was a little blistered.
I really wanted to like these, but the skin came out weird for me.
I thought it was a pretty good side, but my husband went wild for these. Tip: add freshly chopped basil to tomatoes after they come out of the oven.
If to be served as appetizers can understand inserting the sliver of garlic in each but, as an addition to the buffet table, was easier for me to mince a clove of elephant garlic and sprinkle over the top plus add some garlic-infused olive oil. I used dried oregano (1/4 tsp. crushed) and, as others, baked for 12 mins. then, topped with chunks of a Greek Feta marinated in olive oil with oregano and basil. Second time, I prep'd about 3 times the recipe and, next day, served the remaining few topped with add'l Feta and popped under broiler for 2 mins. Next time, plan to toss the hot tomatoes with fresh spinach leaves and slivers of carmelized garlic.
A versatile recipe - thank you for submitting it.
Love it! I used a little minced garlic, Italian parsley, truffle oil, feta cheese, salt and pepper. I just took a little chuck of feta and stuffed it in every tomato. Very tasty!
I used only 1-tbsp. of olive oil and did not use any salt. The recipe was well-written, the item tasted great, and it had a great presentation. This has become a low-fat, family favorite and is very easy to prepare and set out when friends visit, too.
I followed JDVMD's lead and used minced garlic. And I used grape tomatoes. I pierced each with a sharp knife to insure they'd give up a little of their juices. Delicious side dish to our steaks.
The only thing I added was I used basil flavored olive oil...This is a great recipe..A friend said she sprinkles parmesean cheese on top right out of the oven....If using as an hor doeurves, just put a pretty toothpick into each one.
