Heat oil in medium nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot.

Place first sheet on a large baking sheet coated with cooking spray.

Brush sheet with a bit olive oil, sprinkle a little bit bread crumbs over.

Repeat same steps until phyllo sheets are all stacked, brush top layer with a bit olive oil.

Fold in about ½-inch edges of phyllo to form crust.

Cover loosely with damp towel if onions are not ready.

We have lots of cherry tomatoes growing at our backyard, they are juicy, sweet and screaming the ripeness to us. This is the recipe we made, and it was so tasty.

Loved the crispy phyllo pastries that's also low in fat and calories, it offered some great texture and flavor. Caramelized onion, goat cheese, and cherry tomatoes were topped over phyllo. It's hard to go wrong with all these yummy things together.

You can have it as an appetizer, side dish, main dish, or whatever you feel like. It's delicious!
