Fish House Tomatoes
Lloyd Brown @ 2014 Potluck

22 Large Tomatoes
15 medium onions
 dark brown sugar
1 lb butter

 Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

  • Wash Tomatoes

  • Cut in half and remove stem.

  • Place in buttered shallow roasting pan.

  • Peel onions and cut into quarters.

  •  Place onions in Cuisinart and puree. (Two medium onions should yield about one cup of puree)

  • Top each tomato with

o   a heaping tablespoon of pureed onion

o   a teaspoon of brown sugar

o   one slice of butter

o    Sprinkle the remaining brown sugar over all.


  • Check oven for correct temperature. Place roasting pan on the middle rack.

  • Cook for 3 hours, basting regularly.

Note: Do not attempt to speed up by cooking at a higher temperature.  If all of the liquid boils off well before the cooking is complete, add a modest amount more. However, there should be very little liquid in the pan by the end of the three hours.
