Yummy Green Tomato Casserole

It's that time again---green tomato time that is, so thought you might like one of my most favorite recipes. This is a re-post from November 8th, 2008. Enjoy!

If You Like Green Tomatoes...... This is a recipe I got from one of the magazines that come with the Sunday newspaper. While her tomatoes were still green on the vine my good buddy Marilyn provided me with a bunch. I probably made at least 6 of these casseroles and just about everyone who had a taste wanted the recipe. So, I’m passing this on to my blog friends so next summer you also can have a tasty, green treat! (I must add, this is way easier to make than fried green tomatoes and a whole lot less messy!)


Green Tomato Casserole

4 thick French bread slices, torn into small pieces (about 2 c.)

1 t. sugar

½ t. salt

¼ t. black pepper

4 medium green tomatoes, cut into ¼ inch slices

1 c. shredded sharp cheddar

1 T. butter

1- Preheat oven to 400F. Lightly grease 1 ½ qt. casserole, deep dish pie pan, or 4 ramekins.

2- Place bread in a food processor and pulse to a coarse texture. Combine sugar, salt and pepper in a small bowl; mix well.

3- Arrange 1/3 of the tomato slices in the bottom of pan. Sprinkle 1/3 of sugar mixture, 1/3 of the bread crumbs and 1/3 c. cheddar over tomatoes. Repeat with a second layer. For the third layer, add remaining tomatoes, sugar, bread crumbs. Dot with butter. Cover with foil.

4- Bake 1 hour. Uncover and sprinkle remaining 1/3 c. cheddar on top. Bake 5 minutes longer, or until cheese melts. Remove from oven and let stand 15 minutes before serving to allow flavors to blend. Serves 4.

Yum I'll definitely try this, I have never eaten green tomatoes in any form, so this may be a good way to start.

just seen this recipe on here, and wow, it will come in useful.

Husband has a greenhouse full of tomatoes which are stubbornly refusing to go red.

We have not had enough warmth in the sun, despite it being a good summer on the whole here.

I will def. use this one to good effect.
