GRATINATED CHERRY TOMATOES WITH HOT AND HERBY MOZZARELLA FILLING

Pomodorini

This finger food obsession of mine is almost worrying me, the only things I feel like making lately turn out to be finger food and I wonder what that means, do I long to go back to smaller dimensions or am I in a perpetual party mood, sadly undelivered and therefore I have to give full expression to it here on Lucullian? Whatever it is, here we have yet another little finger food dish, this time cherry tomatoes with a herby and hot mozzarella filling and I assure you that the salted caper on top of it is the crowning of the jewel! Don’t leave it out.

– Cut the tomatoes in two, scoop out the seeds and use them for something else. Put the mozzarella into the tomatoes and then put these in an oven-proof form.
– Bake in a pre-heated oven (175°C/350°F) until golden, it takes between 10-15 minutes.
– Top with an unwashed salted caper and serve hot or tepid.
