Tomato Casserole

Karen Petree


Our friend, Judy Anderson (R.I.P.), submitted this recipe for our church cookbook. I'll never forget the day my husband showed me and asked my opinion about fixing it for one of our family holiday dinners. In spite of my protests (EWWWWs), he boldly informed me that he was going to fix it anyway.

Now you're going to think I'm crazy, but I could actually smell the wonderful aroma of this dish from the living room before it even went in the oven. HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE??? As it turned out, I'm so very thankful that (cough) he didn't listen to me. (I'm surprised this isn't already in JAP)
