Fried Tomato Gravy on Toast with Bacon (1976)

"Take 3 or 4 strips of bacon and fry very crisp in a heavy skillet. Remove and keep warm. Leave a moderate amount of bacon fat in the skillet.

"Thickly slice ripe tomatoes and fry over medium-high heat in the same skillet.  Add salt, freshly ground pepper, and a tiny sprinkling of sugar. Turn once, fry until the liquid disappears and the tomatoes are brown. Remove tomatoes from skillet.

"Add to skillet 1/2 cup or more scalded milk per person.  Cook and stir, loosening the drippings, until the milk is reduced by about one-third. Season with salt and pepper.

"Lay tomato slices on buttered toast, pour milk gravy over, and lay bacon slices on top.  This is great for brunch or supper."
