1 (28 ounce) can
diced tomatoes, drained
crushed saltine crackers
salt and pepper to taste
grated Parmesan cheese
This is a great recipe, but I took it as a basic one, for me to fiddle with as I like. Dried parsley for me is akin to hay in flavour, so for me, fresh herbs from the garden (mixed in with the tomatoes) are a must. I have also made this not just with crushed crackers, but also diced French bread, and stuffing mix, and different cheeses. I have stopped draining the tomatoes, too, and just add a little more saltines or whatever. It is a great side dish to ANYTHING, and we love to make a meal of this with just some poached eggs and toast. My youngest calls it "lasagna", and leftovers are good on toast for breakfast the next day.
Not much taste - might as well have heated a can of tomatoes. I might experiment with red pepper flakes, garlic, or something to spice it up..It certainly is easy enough.
This was a good side dish. I did use stuffing mix instead of the crackers. Thanks!
I thought this receipe was great. My daughter made it again the other night and added an egg to the mixture before adding in the diced tomatoes. My mother in law said it reminded her of a dish her mom used to make. Will definitely make again!
Since I didn't have the 28 oz can of tomatoes on hand I used 2-14.5 oz. cans. In the future I wouldn't drain them since I found the finished dish a little dry. Also I would add just a little sugar to cut the acid taste of the tomatoes.
Would be 5 stars if the size of the baking dish had been included...served at a brunch and had raves!
Good base recipe. I give 5 stars after I made a few changes. I sauted some onions and garlic and added some spinach and shredded chedder to the mix. Was also thinking that next time I might add some Feta instead of the parm. You can do anything you like... clean out the fridge!
This is my ultimate comfort food. So easy to throw together and so satisfying as a side or a main. I love tomatoes with cheese so if I have it lying around I'll stir through some grated mozzarella before baking.
