A delicious Italian-inspired snack or lunch dish made with fresh herbs, crusty bread and sweet tomatoes, all drizzled with honey. Use good quality honey and take the flavors of this sandwich to a whole new level.  


  • 2 pints cherry or grape tomatoes, halved lengthwise
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons good quality honey
  • 2 teaspoons thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 12 baguette slices, cut 1/2 inch thick on the bias
  • 1 cup fresh ricotta (8 ounces)
  • 6 basil leaves, thinly sliced or torn


  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees and line a baking pan with wax or parchment paper.
  2. Place the tomatoes with the olive oil, 2 tablespoons honey, thyme leaves, salt and pepper in a large bowl and toss to coat.
  3. Put the tomatoes onto the baking sheet cut side up, and bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  4. Ready the oven broiler.
  5. Place the baguette slices on the baking pan and broil for about 30 seconds until lightly toasted. Spread a thick layer of ricotta over a slice and then top with the tomatoes, some basil and a drizzle of the leftover 1 tablespoon of honey.
