Scalloped Tomatoes Dee Dee's Way

One of my favorite side dishes is scalloped tomatoes.

The original recipe comes from Cecil McMillan's "The Once in a Blue Moon" cookbook that was published in 1979. Cecil also owned the Blue Moon Restaurant in Montgomery, AL (my home town). Back in the day, that is where all the bridal luncheons were booked.

After Cecil sold his restaurant I had the pleasure of eating his good food at the bank I worked for. He was hired as the manager of our banks cafeteria, how lucky we were to have him.

Over the years I've tweaked this recipe to my liking. Hope you enjoy.
