White House Scalloped Tomatoes (1887)

"Butter the sides and bottom of a pudding dish. Put a layer of bread crumbs in the bottom. On them, put a layer of sliced tomatoes, then sprinkle with salt, pepper, some bits of butter, and a very little white sugar.

"Then repeat with another layer of crumbs, another of tomatoes, and seasonings until full. having the top layer of tomatoes, with bits of butter on each. Baked covered until well cooked through. Remove the cover, and brown quickly."

(Origin - "The Original White House Cook Book" by Mrs. F.L. Gillette and Hugo Ziemann, 1887.)
