Byrdhouse Blistered Cherry Tomatoes

These blistered cherry tomatoes are easy, tasty, and pretty. This is a great way to whip up a side dish, or an add-on for a salad, in about one minute. Be careful and quick with these — we want 'em blistered, not blown apart!


    • 2 teaspoons butter
    • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
    • 1 teaspoon dried basil
    • ½ teaspoon white sugar
    • salt and pepper to taste


Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add cherry tomatoes, basil, and sugar. Cook for about 30 seconds, then season to taste with salt and pepper. Continue cooking for a few seconds more until tomatoes have just started to blister.
