Tomato Bites

Tomato Bites
I really had fun with making stuff for Tapas last month, but I just couldn't focus on just one thing though.

 I made the Onion and Mushroom Tart with Goat Cheese,
Onion and Mushroom Tart

Steamed Shrimp

and served them, made a couple of Hot Cheese spreads,

and then I made these.

Tomato Bites and it's all Paula Deans fault.   If I hadn't been half listening to her show, I would never have made either of 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, for these.

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 backing 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.
