    Possumstew's Note:

    I've been eating creamed tomatoes over biscuits or cornbread my entire life. It's so yummy! For those who've never had it, it tastes similar to creamy tomato soup, but it's thicker. I grew up in rural West Virginia, and everyone always called it creamed tomatoes, but a few years ago, I found out that some people call it tomato gravy. Either way, it's the same thing. My hubby also likes to pour it over his fried or mashed potatoes! I hope you enjoy it. It's always been one of those down home comfort foods for me! Serve with homemade biscuits. Here's a link to a really good recipe!

    1. 1
      Pour tomatoes in a saucepan or skillet.
    2. 2
      Add butter.
    3. 3
      Simmer over medium heat about 15 minutes, or until tomatoes are tender. (If using juice, then just bring it up to a simmer, and continue.).
    4. 4
      After tomatoes are tender, mix your flour and milk in a bowl until smooth, and add to tomatoes, stirring well.
    5. 5
      Add salt, pepper, and sugar to taste.
    6. 6
      If it's too thick, add a little more milk. If it's too thin, either simmer on low until it's the desired thickness, or mix up a bit more flour and milk and add to your tomatoes.
    7. 7
      That's it! Serve over homemade biscuits, cornbread, potatoes, or whatever you like!

      I am also from West Virginia. My husbands loves this. He grew up on this. His mother is getting on in years and can't make this anymore, or remember how to make it. He was so happy i found this recipe. Exactly like mom's. Thanks so much for posting.

      I grew up on creamed tomatoes, fried potatoes and biscuits! This is the same recipe that was handed down to me from my grandma. My grandma had a sweet tooth so she always put a dab more sugar in it - we have used both home-canned tomato juice and tomatoes - both are delicious! Try this recipe, you won't be disappointed. Oh, by the way, I live in West Virginia too.

      Few months ago, I had prepared cream of tomato...I prefer grinding fresh tomatoes from market...I mix it baby tomatoes (its small ones).You may add onion and garlic powder in case you are bored with pepper (optional). Garnish the soup with spring onion. If you want it in fresh mood...try mint leaves without onion and garlic.
