Green Tomato Casserole courtesy of Cassie

We have made this twice now since we got the recipe from Cassie's site at in Amazing Graceland to check out her site look at the side bar she has some beautiful pictures.
The first time we made it was to bring to our jam night and as we like to bring something new this fit the bill alas we did not get any pictures. This time we got some. We also peeled the tomatoes the second time to make it easier to get out out the dish.
The picture of the green tomatoes at the top is one of wife's set ups so I took a picture and thought I'd post. See what I have to put up with she steals my produce to use in her paintings.
4 thick french bread slices,torn into small pieces about 2 cups
1 teaspoon of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 medium green tomatoes cut into 1/4 inch slices (we pealed them the second time)
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese
1 Tablespoon butter
Preheat oven to 400. lightly grease a 1 1/2 quart casserole or deep dish pie pan
place bread in food processor and pulse to a course texture
Combine sugar, salt, and pepper in a small bowl mix well.
Arrange 1/3 of tomatoes slices in bottom of pan sprinkle 1/3 of sugar mixture
1/3 of bread crumbs and 1/3 of cheese. repeat till you have three layers, leaving of the cheese on last layer, add dots of butter on top and cover with foil.
Bake for one hour, uncover and add last 1/3 of cheese and bake uncovered for 5 minutes or till cheese melts, remove and let stand 15 minutes before serving.

I saw this recipe on her site and have been meaning to make it. But, our tomatoes kinda croaked and need to get some so I can try it!
