This is one of my favorite party dishes


  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. In a large cast-iron skillet head the oil over moderately high heat.
  3. When the oil is hot, place as many tomatoes as will comfortably fit face-down in a skillet.
  4. Sear for 5-6 minutes without moving the tomatoes, until bottom is dark and caramelized.
  5. Then, transfer them (cooked side up) to a baking dish.
  6. Continue until all the tomatoes are cooked, then pour the cooking juices over them, top with salt and fresh thyme and bake for 30 minutes.

Made these for dinner a couple of days ago. I wanted to use up the tomatoes from our garden before they could get the chance to go bad. This was a very easy recipe, and my family just loved it. It sure beats trying to can tomatoes in 100-degree weather!
