These are the last of my little Tommy-Toe/Pear  tomatoes from this Summer.

I decided to roast them with some garlic and broccoli.  Can’t go wrong there.  Roasting veggies brings out the sweetness in them – keep this in mind with winter (yuck) tomatoes that you get from the grocery store.

Yum – I’m tasting the sweetness of the tomato, paired with the very mellow taste of the garlic and the broccoli is just wonderful.

You’ll need:

  • Tomatoes, sliced
  • Garlic, sliced
  • Broccoli, chopped
  • Olive Oil for a good drizzle
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste

Toss to combine;  Roast in preheated 400 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes.

These little crackers taste so much like Cheez-It crackers – that even I was impressed.  My husband said, “these are so addicting.” =)

Try adding different types of cheese.  Swiss would be good.  Oh my!  Try adding a pinch of Chipotle Chile Pepper.

The possibilities are endless.

Cheese Crackers

  • 8 oz, weight sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 cup whole wheat all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 2 Tablespoons cold water

Pulse everything (except water) together in food processor or until dough resembles coarse sand.

Pulse in water, 1 tablespoon at a time.

Remove dough and wrap in plastic, and chill for 20 minutes.

Roll out dough into desired shapes and place on parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

Bake @ 350F for 10 to 15 minutes, or until crispy
