Directions:

  1. Wash the tomatoes, peppers and raspberries and let them dry on a paper towel. Lightly oil a pan and roast the tomatoes over medium heat for 3-5 minutes (use an iron skillet for this step if you have one!) The tomatoes should look slightly charred after cooking. Cut the tomatoes in half.
  2. Slice or dice the peppers, whichever you prefer. Cut each slice of brie into thirds so that it matches the size of the toast. Cut the dark chocolate into smaller pieces or create chocolate shavings (this will be used as a topping for the sweet toasts).
  3. For the savory toasts: Place brie, peppers, and roasted tomatoes on top of 6 mini toasts. For the sweet toasts: Place brie, raspberry jam and raspberries on top of 6 mini toasts. Top the sweet toasts with the chocolate shavings or pieces.
  4. Place all of the mini toasts in a skillet and cover with a lid. Cook on low heat until the brie has melted. Remove all toasts from the skillet, place onto a plate, and top each toast with a few drops of Trader Joe’s Balsamic Glaze. I hope you enjoyed making this recipe as much as I did, and thank you for reading!
