"Cut tomatoes into halves. Season them with salt and pepper, cover them with brown sugar, and dot them generously with butter.
"Place them in a pan and broil them under a slow flame, or place the pan in a moderate oven. When tomatoes are done, pour off the juice, add a little cream, and thicken the sauce with flour.
"Cook the sauce until it is smooth. Prepare rounds of buttered toast, place the tomatoes on the toast, and pour the sauce over them."
