Recipe by evelyn/athens
Adapted from Real American Food by Jane and Michael Stern (Alfred Knopf, 1986). Copyright 1986 by Jane and Michael Stern, and found at thesplendidtable.com. I like to serve this sweet/tart side dish with a plain, grilled meat, and a green salad. I personally add less sugar - closer to 1/2 of a cup, but wanted to submit the recipe in its original form.

I respectfully, but heartily disagree with the previous review. I used fresh tomatoes, including some cherry tomatoes. I DID add a pinch of salt, because we like salt in our household. We found this warming and tasty. A nice addition to our 'comfort food' files for chilly evenings.
- 1 (28 ounce) can whole tomatoes, including juice
- 8 slices white bread, well toasted
- 8 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup sugar
