Country Comfort Food/What's Cookin?

It feels cold here, and supposed to get down to 48 degrees overnight. Brr!

I thought I'd start a new thread since the "What did you have for dinner from the garden" one was getting lengthy. With the weather changing, I don't know about y'all, but I'm starting to crave comfort food. That usually means something HOT from the oven.

Didn't feel good today, so I really wanted something easy. I still have plenty of luscious tomatos from the garden. (Oh, how I wish they would last all winter!)

Well, what I fixed was so easy and so comfort food....

Tomato gratin

I buttered a small deep casserole, and started layering some slices of tomatos, sprinkling each layer with salt and pepper, and dots of real butter. Then I topped the layers with buttered bread crumbs with a few thyme leaves mixed in, and baked it at 350 for about 30 min. When it was done, I put it in a bowl and mixed it all together so the bread crumbs took up the tomato juices, and ate it with a spoon. This was so good! I'll be making this as long as the tomatos last, and figuring out a way to make it with my canned or frozen ones.

It really was a comfort food and so easy.

You're spagetti sauce, (from the new gadget) sounded yummy, and Carol, your mixed TexMex casserole is one I'm going to have to try!
