These were a great use of our bumper cherry tomato crop. Very tasty and came together easily. We ate them as snacks but they would make a great appetizer. I used red onions because I didn't have shallots and I think next time I would sauté the onions/shallots a bit. I also used all parmesan cheese, instead of parmesan and fontina. We didn't miss the fontina at all. If you are making them for a party, make them on the same day you are going to serve them--they got soggy when stored in the fridge.
Jazz up snack or party time with Tomato Turnovers. These portable, savory bites will be pleasing to all.
