This is a southern classic. The sugar will form a nice caramel crust on top of the casserole. Enjoy!

I was not impressed. I used real tomatoes since they're in season but all it tasted like to me was a pile of stewed tomatoes. Not anything impressive or to write home about.

Just simply fantastic! I did add 1 T chopped garlic, and for us, next time I would also add probably 1/2 C chopped sauteed onions. I liked the sweetness of teh casserole but missed the savory notes--I know that's not how it's supposed to be made, but simply our tastes. As made, it is delicious and sweet. I wonder if you could use fresh tomatoes from the garden? I bet that would be also wonderful. Thanks, Rhonda, I loved it!
