Tomato Pudding (and great story!)


This is from my close friend who shares this story: "My great, great grandparents (on the Bogan family side) loved this recipe served at a local restaurant, and requested the recipe. The chef turned them down, but they were persistent and years later, the chef said "yes" but the price was $100 dollars for the recipe. That was a considerably large amount of money back then but all the relatives pulled together to raise the fee. Once Great Great Grandma Bogan had the recipe, and after paying such a sum for it, she gave it to everyone who would receive it. Since that time, it has become a holiday favorite in our family. PASS IT ON!" I have tasted it and it's like a sweet/sour pudding that's a great side dish. Sounds weird but it's good.


  • 2 (12 ounce) cans tomato puree
  • 1/2 pound butter (2 sticks)
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 12 slices toast, cubed


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a saucepan, bring the puree, butter, brown sugar and water to a boil, stirring constantly.
  3. Place toast cubes in a greased casserole dish. Cover the dish with boiled tomato mixture.
  4. Bake covered for about 45 minutes, and serve hot.
