Tomato Casserole

This is a delicious side dish, that is wonderful for church potlucks,and can be tailored to however many you are going to serve. Make it ahead and either cook it or warm it up when you get to your destination. Or maybe you need something that does not need to be hot when you bring it...

Tomato Casserole

1 sleeve Ritz crackers crushed coarsely
4 large tomatoes (Tennessee tomatoes are the best)
Chopped onion
Parmesan cheese or one of the cheese combinations
Salt and Pepper

I usually use a 2 qt white Corningware dish buttered. Peel tomatoes and slice thickly. Make layer of tomatoes, sprinkle salt and pepper, few chopped onions, cover with Ritz crackers, sprinkle Parmesan cheese and top with four or five pats of butter. Continue layering until all the tomatoes are gone, ending with the Cracker layer and topped with butter. Bake uncovered at 350 until hot--about 30 minutes if at room temperature or more if refrigerated.
