Scalloped Tomatoes

This time of year the tomatoes are plentiful and this is the time of the year to make this dish.  This is one of my all time favorite dishes my Grandmother Patty always had on the Sunday dinner table.  With fresh tomatoes from the garden the flavor of this dish is unbeatable.

6 fresh ripe tomatoes, peeled and chopped up
2 cups of chopped up stale French Bread
1 tbsp to 1/2 cup of sugar (season to your taste)
Salt and pepper to taste
3 tbsp butter

Skin and chop up tomatoes.  Place the tomatoes in a buttered casserole.  Add sugar, salt, and pepper and stir.  Chop up the French Bread and layer on top of tomatoes.  Dot the bread with the butter.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.   Take out of oven and let cool for 10 minutes and serve.

Variations on this include adding garlic, chopped onion, basil, and some grated parmesan.    If you make without fresh tomatoes you can use a #3 size can of tomatoes which equals 4 cups of diced tomatoes.

I think my mom may have made this when I was a kid. There's nothing like those amazing tomatoes fresh from the garden - any way you can serve them! So delicious.

This sounds yummy. I will make it for myself since no one really likes tomatoes in my family. They don't know what they are missing. Thanks!

Looks and sounds fantastic! I'm kind of tired of eating sandwiches. Hey, I'm having my first party starting later today. It's all about "tweaking." Love for you to come join up!

My Mom and Grandma made it too, but I think my Mom made it on top of the stove. Hubby never liked it so only made it once! Now I'm hungry for it, so will make some for me!

Hey, I enjoyed your post. I found it via Stone Gable's On the Menu Monday. I have never even heard of scalloped tomatoes before. I have linked in some rhubarb and banana jam I made to use up some bananas that were turning brown. Have a nice week.
