Re: wanted: tomato bread pudding

1 24 or 29 oz can of tomato sauce
1 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 pinch salt
1/3 cup boiling water (microwave for 90 seconds)
8 slices of bread (I used a nutty 12-grain)
1 tablespoon butter

Combine the first four ingredients (through water). In a 2-quart casserole dish, cube the bread and dice butter over the top. Pour the tomato sauce over the bread. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 60 minutes.

I used a 29 oz can of tomato sauce, and the bread pudding turned out a bit mushier than I would have preferred, so next time I intend to cut down on the sauce.

Re: wanted: tomato bread pudding

I looked in all of my recipe books but i could not find anything. But i did find one online that uses sliced tomatoes

Tomato Bread Pudding

3 cups white bread cubes (1/2 inch), toasted
1/2 cup melted butter
2 or 3 large tomatoes, peeled & thinly sliced
1 teaspoon salt or to taste
1/2 to 1 cup brown sugar (depends how sweet you like it)
1 -10.5 oz can tomato puree
Fresh basil or thyme leaves if desired

Toss bread cubes with the butter. Place a layer in a medium size casserole dish, a layer of tomatoes and repeat ending with tomatoes on top.

In a bowl, mix salt, sugar, basil if desired and tomato puree together. Spread over the top. Use a fork to poke mixture around the tomatoes and bread cubes.

Bake for about 50 minutes in a 375-degree F. oven.
