Tomato Dumplin's and Breaded Tomatoes (2 Recipes)

Diana Newton


GMa made this and also breaded tomatoes often. This is more like a tomato soup with dumplings. It can easily be varied to your tastes and the recipe cut in 1/2, also.
Just use one can of counter biscuits and reduce sizes and/or amounts of other ingredients, if you want.

NOTE: Both recipes are very quick, easy and can be 'made your way' any way you prefer. The basics are provided here.
