Servings: 4
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 10 Minutes
Total Time: 20 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 (8 ounce) block feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 10.5 ounces cherry tomatoes, preferably different colors, halved
  • Scant ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon pepper
  • Pinch sugar
  • 1½ tablespoons capers, drained

Instructions

  1. Preheat the broiler and set the oven rack in the top position. Place the feta in a small (1-quart) baking dish and set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until lightly golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes, salt, pepper and sugar; cook, stirring frequently, until the tomatoes are softened and starting to burst, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the capers.
  3. Scatter the tomatoes around the feta and broil until the feta is softened and browned on top, 3 to 4 minutes (but keep an eye on it as broilers vary greatly.) Serve warm with bread.
