Roasted Tomato Chutney

   More recipes from A Very Potter Birthday.  Oh, by the way.  If you don't understand the "Very Potter" references, which I am sure most of you do, go watch StarKid Productions' A Very Potter Musical and A Very Potter Sequel right now!  They are great way to spend your would-be-productive mornings.  Ok, roasted tomatoes had to be worked into the menu somehow.  This was my solution after Krista expressed her craving for an Italian tomato bruschetta.  (By the way Krista, you were Harry but you showed the blond half of your head in the picture.  WTF, man?  If Harry were a scene kid, maybe?)

Roasted Tomato Chutney on Toast
4-5 large vine ripe tomatoes, chopped
1 small onion, diced
2 medium cloves garlic
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp rosemary
1/4 tsp sea salt (a healthy 1/4 tsp...)
1/8 tsp cracked black pepper
1 baguette, sliced into 1/2 in slices
2 Tbsp butter
1/2 C white cheddar, shredded

   On a baking sheet, toss together tomatoes, onion, garlic cloves (still in skins), oil, rosemary, salt, and pepper.  Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.  Toss twice during cooking.
   Remove skins from garlic and paste.  Mix with roasted tomatoes.
   Spread a little butter on each slice of bread.  Put in 350 deg F oven for 4-5 minutes.  Top with tomato chutney and sprinkle a little cheese over each one.  Return to oven for 6-7 minutes, until cheese is melted.
   15-20 depending on the slices of bread.
*Planning a get together?  The chutney can be made two days in advance and then assembled/toasted right before the party.

You better believe we went out in public like this!  Yeah, we are THOSE people.
You can't really see my amazing black wig in this picture. However, this pic does accurately sum us up.  (This isn't quite everyone.)


  1. Love the party picture!

  2. That chutney sounds ah-maz-ing. Also, I'm seriously jealous about your crazy HP party! I love Harry Potter and all things Harry should put up some more pics of costumes!



Feedback makes me happy!
