and served them, made a couple of Hot Cheese spreads,
and then I made these.
Tomato Bites and it’s all Paula Deens fault. If I hadn’t been half listening to her show, I would never have made either the Cheese spreads or these. And they were pretty darn tasty. Oh and if I hadn’t had that other sheet of puff pastry handy as well, which helped, cause I used it.
No real recipe for this, just follow the directions.
1 sheet Puff Pastry, thawed and unfolded. Take your rolling pin and just press it out a little.
Next slice some Roma Tomatoes, fairly thin, and set aside.
Grate some Parmesan Cheese or use the prepared stuff, either one is good.
Take a fancy round cookie cutter and cut rounds out of the pastry dough.
Place the tomato slices on top of each round and then top that with about a teaspoon (or more) freshly grated Parmesan Cheese. Put them on parchment covered baking sheet and sprinkle with some Italian Seasoning and bake in a 375-400 degree oven for about 15 minutes or until the pastry is browned and done. The Parmesan cheese will have melted down into a nice crusty explosion of yum. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Don’t they look yummy? They were. I will be making these again, so simple, easy, and good. Next time I might just put a teaspoon of cheese under the tomato, or even use a combo of Mozzarella and Parmesan to top them. So many possibilities.
