My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Breaded Tomatoes

If you are not from the South or have never visited here than maybe you are not familiar with Breaded Tomatoes, Scalloped Tomatoes or Stewed Tomatoes. They are basically the same. A rich, sweet tomato dish that is perfect served with almost anything.

This is the recipe given to me by my friend Janice Price and originated at the Claudia Sanders Dinner House, in Shelbyville, Kentucky. Yes, Claudia was the wife of Colonel Harlan Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken fame.

The recipe calls for canned tomatoes and toasted bread, however I use fresh tomatoes when they are in season and left over biscuits from breakfast, because that's what my grandmother did. These are heavenly!

Breaded Tomatoes
6 servings

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 slices bread, toasted and cut into 1/4-inch cubes, or biscuits

In a large saucepan, saute onion in butter until tender, stir in flour until blended. Add the tomatoes, sugar, oil, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in toast cubes or biscuits.
