These roasted tomato slices are great on a BLT sandwich. They can be made ahead and stored for a week in the refrigerator. Roasting tomatoes concentrates their flavor and brings out their sweetness.
Heat oven to 300ºF. Coat large rimmed baking sheet with 1/2 of the olive oil.
Cut the tomatoes into 8 thick rounds. Arrange tomato slices on baking sheet in a single layer. Drizzle the tomatoes with the remaining olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Bake for 1 1/2 hours or until tomatoes are lightly browned on edges and shrink to about half their size. Cool completely on wire rack. Roasted tomatoes can be made one week ahead; cover and refrigerate.
*Serving suggestion: Serve two tomato slices on a slice of toasted SWG bread spread with 1 teaspoon of Isabel's mayonnaise. Add 3 slices of bacon, 1 leaf of lettuce, and a thin slice of avocado. This open face sandwich has 1 1/2 carbs, 1 fat, and 3 proteins.
