Blistered Cherry Tomatoes

This is an easy, tasty, pretty way to whip up a side dish, or a leading man for a salad, in about 1 minute. Be careful and quick with these -- you'll 'em blistered, not blown apart!


4 servings


2 teaspoons butter
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 pint cherry tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon granulated (white) sugar
salt and pepper to taste


Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the 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 the tomatoes have just started to blister.
