Old Fashioned Tomato Pudding

Chris Adlfinger


This is excellent side dish for Prime Rib. As it is very rich, it has become part of my traditional Christmas Dinner. The first time I made this for family, my father said it tasted exactly like what his grandmother used to make and he hadn't had it in years.
