Who here needs some sinfully roasted tomatoes on their Everything bagels right now? Me? You? All of us?
I’m not sure if this is a breakfast. Or a snack. Or an emotional emergency but it is severely delicious so I feel like you’ll need to wrap your head around it.
Ready? Let us peepeth.
The bagels – I love Everything, but get whatever gives you giddy pants. (it works brilliantly with the savory tomatoes though.)
The toms – find a mix of color if you can! They’re so pretty. You’ll be so happy.
Shallots and garlic and oregano – oh my. Don’t question it.
Embarrassingly easy. You’ll flip your oven to 300 and get the tomatoes halved and on a rimmed baking sheet along the garlic cloves (out of their skins!) and the shallot (like roughly sliced).
Drizzle a gooooo-oo-ooood (said like Cousin Eddie) amount of extra-virgin olive oil over the tomatoes, along with a bit of oregano leaves, a pinch of salt and a few grinds of pepper. You know how we do.
GIRL. Uh huh. Even if you stop here and throw this beaut into a little jar, you are killing it.
(It’s in the oven about an hour. Nothing too aggressive.)
But let’s keep the magic going.
Ze bagels. We’ll toasty toasty and spready spread with the cream cheese.
I’d like to apologize for the way I said all that just now.
Remember her? Yes you do.
Just drape the tangy, succulent tomatoes over the bagels and weep with what your soul doth know.
The shallots are jammy and tender. The garlic is soft and mellow. Everything in this current situation should be illegal. Extra oregano? I beg you. A crack of black pepper? Run, don’t walk.
Straight into your face with this canoe o’ delight? I’ll throw you in jail myself.
I’ll leave you two alone.
