Healthy Scalloped Tomatoes

Warm and comforting, this old-fashioned side dish is a great way to use up garden bounty. From West Salem, Wisconsin, Norma Pipe says, "I lightened the original recipe by using less butter and flour and only a bit of honey."

    I found this recipe to be a tasty dish & I could've eaten the entire thing! I did use a can of undrained Italian diced tomatoes, 1 chopped onion, 2 Tbsp. butter, 2 tsp. Dijon mustard, but kept the celery, flour, honey, salt and pepper as recipe stated. I also used the 2 slices of whole wheat bread, toasted and cubed. I baked 40 minutes at 350o F. in a 1-qt. casserole dish, coated with cooking spray. Thank you for this recipe! delowenstein

    So good! I just loved this. So nice to have a casserole without cream or cheese. Used tomato-basil flavoured croutons and a bit more butter/flour.

    Very tasty. Kept pretty much to the recipe but used agave syrup instead of honey and added 1/4 cup (yes, just 1/4 cup) of shredded cheddar cheese to top at end. Didn't want it to be too runny so seeded half of the tomatoes.
