Maple Roasted Tomato Toast With Goat Cheese and Mint

Drizzling maple syrup over your Sunday pancakes is just the beginning, especially if you use the great tasting maple syrup from our new vendor Idle Hour Maple.  Roasting cherry tomatoes with maple syrup enhance their natural sweetness, making them an ideal partner for rich, tangy goat cheese Stop by The Cheese People for the goat cheese, and Great Harvest Bread Company for the crusty bread.  Enjoy!

  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint, plus leaves for serving
