In addition to the spices listed, I added some onion powder and a few pinches of oregano. Great as a side dish or as a main meal for two along with a tossed salad.


1 1/2 cups fresh breadcrumbs (I used dried)

3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted (I used unsalted butter)

1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, divided (I used Parmigiano Reggiano)

2 large firm tomatoes, sliced (I used 5 medium to medium/large plum tomatoes)

1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar

salt and pepper, to taste

1 teaspoon dried basil

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

2 green onions, chopped

2 eggs, beaten

1/2 cup half-and-half (I used lowfat milk)

1/2 cup grated swiss cheese (Update: I've also used other cheeses)


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

2. Combine crumbs, butter and 1/4 cup (4 Tbsp) Parmesan cheese.

3. Press into greased 9" pie plate and bake for 10 minutes.

4. Remove from oven. Cool completely on wire rack.

5. Re-set oven temperature to 350 degrees F.

6. Spread tomatoes in a layer on the crumb crust (I made two layers).

7. Sprinkle with sugar, salt, pepper, basil, garlic powder, and green onions.

8. Mix eggs with half and half and the grated Swiss cheese, then pour over tomatoes. (I added some salt and pepper to the egg mixture).

9. Sprinkle the remaining Parmesan over the top.

10. Bake for 30 minutes.

Makes 6 side-dish servings.
