This week was one of those weeks where I refused to go to the grocery store because of the Thanksgiving. Not only did I not want to get stuck in the rush, but why buy groceries for a week, when leftovers will last you just as long. Granted, I’m not actually cooking my Thanksgiving dinner, so it’s a win-win. The challenge of this week was to use all my purchases from the week before- cue Foil Packet Blue Cheese Tomatoes! This recipe is a yummy excuse to use the leftover cherry or grape tomatoes from that double pint container at Trader Joe’s- ya you know what I’m talking about. This recipe would be easy and delicious on a camping trip and clean up is a breeze- just dump the foil and voila!
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tbsp Gorgonzola or blue cheese crumbles
salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, or alternatively throw the foil packet on the grill. Combine halved tomatoes, cheese, salt and pepper in a bowl until tomatoes are evenly coated. Place contents of the bowl on a sheet of foil and wrap up the edges to create a pocket. Place foil packet in the oven and cook until tomatoes are soft and cheese is melted, around 10 minutes.
