Brunch: slow roasted tomatoes with feta and basil

We've started a "brunch group" with three other couples who are former Wellingtonians and now live in Auckland. We hosted in April, I think, and it took four months to arrange the next one!

F and N hosted yesterday, and the simple main course they served was so good I had to share it:

Slow Roasted Tomatoes with Feta and Basil:

Tomatoes (probably 1-2 per person)
Olive oil
Fresh Basil
Grain toast

Wake up early, slice tomatoes and spread in a single layer in a roasting dish. Slosh olive oil reasonably generously over the top, and add a couple of drops of balsamic to each tomato. Go back to bed, or out for your run, as you roast at a low temperature (I think 100 degrees c would do it) for 1-3 hours. Serve warm on grainy toast with plenty of chopped feta (don't skimp!) and fresh basil.

Simple, practical, delicious. Perfect brunch-time entertaining recipe!
