A Thanksgiving side dish that looks as bad as it sounds, but tastes amazing! Think bread pudding. We double the recipe most times.



  • 1/4 Water or Juice
  • 1 C Stewed Tomatoes
  • 1 C Dark Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 C Melted Butter
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 45 Slices of Bread


  1. Mix all ingredients except bread (butter last), and blend. Do not allow to cool.
  2. Cut bread into cubes and place in 8×8 baking dish.
  3. Pour mixture over, completely covering bread and bake.


  • Depending on the bread, I may/may not drain the tomatoes (i.e.Gluten free bread is more dense). On a double order, I use 1/4 OJ and 1/4 Coke. Favorite brand of tomatoes is the carmelized onion S & G brand diced tomatoes. Walmart generic is also good. This is a wonderful recipe to get the kids started on contributing to holiday meals. Can be cooked and reheated. We like ours crispier, but watch carefully not to overcook or you will have a bad combo of burnt bread and sugar!
