Sweet Fresh Tomato Loaf

Pat Duran


This recipe turned out very good.
I had 2 tomatoes and 1 lemon sitting on my cupboard for 3 days- Today I finally decided to use them up. This is the recipe I came up with. Hope you enjoy!
I didn't add bacon bits , but I think I might the next time and omit the nuts.
