  1. I have not had nor have I made this in years. Used to have it at my Grandmother’s as a kid. I remember how good it is. I always just used any kind of canned tomatoes and a good bread like French or Artisan preferably a few days old.

    1. Aren’t those kind of memories the best Doris. I grew up eating this and I have always fixed it for my husband. I truly thought everyone knew about it but recently learned that is not the case. A friend of mine who lives in another state called one day asking me if I had a recipe for something like this. She had never heard of it. Her father was dying and for some reason asked for “tomato gravy”. He was from WV and had eaten this growing up. She fixed this and he said it was exactly as he remembered. I can only imagine how good it would be with a good french or Artisan bread. I could eat those breads every day anyway. Thank you for taking the time to comment, and I bet we could share some great recipes and memories.

  2. Yes I am from w.va now living in the south. I was raised eating this wonderful side dish. We always at ours with biscuits. I have yet to find anyone in ms that has eaten this dish. Haven’t had any for many years but I can see it in the near future. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Awww thank you! It is amazing the foods we grew up with and then see that other people have never had them. I could not get a better picture of the tomatoes because that’s just what they are!! LOl I bet you and I could share some great recipes that neither of us has had for years. Great talking to you.
