Notes

  • This is a scalloped fresh tomato recipe, not canned. 
  • Use margarine for butter, if desired.
  • This is a great way to use up leftover bread or buns.  Tear the leftover buns into pieces and use as soft bread crumbs.  Use approximately 2 slices of bread or one whole hamburger bun.
  • I used grated Parmesan but shredded Parmesan would work too. 
  • Be sure to let the scalloped tomatoes with bread crumbs stand for several minutes before serving. This will help the juices stay in the casserole.
