Scalloped Tomatoes





I have done scalloped potatoes and sweet potatoes but haven’t ever thought of using the same technique for tomatoes.  Apologies to whoever it was I got this idea from, because I can't remember.

Ingredients:

Tomatoes
Olive Oil
Grated Cheese
Breadcrumbs
Salt/pepper/cayenne pepper
Knobs of butter

Method:

While your oven is heating, peel your tomatoes.  I did this by boiling some water, making a little x at the top of each tomato.  You pour the boiling water over them for just a moment or two and the skins practically detach themselves.

Slice your tomatoes.

Put layers of tomato (plus seasoning) and cheese until you've filled your greased pie plate.

Finish with a layer of cheese, then breadcrumbs topped with a knob or 2 of butter.

This only needs about 15 minutes in a moderate oven.  A nice side dish.

  2. I have a ton of tomatoes in the house -- trying to enjoy them before the end of the season. This looks good.

  4. I think this dish was popular in the 19th century, sometimes is listed as a Southern classic, and looks worth having back now!
