Candied Cherry Tomatoes

This is a tasty and easy way to use cherry tomatoes. We always have lots of them and it is good to know as many ways as possible to serve them! 3 tablespoons butter 1/4 cup onions -- chopped 4 cups cherry tomatoes 1/2 cup packed brown sugar -- or honey 3/4 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 cups bread crumbs -- buttered Wash and drain cherry tomatoes; remove stems. Melt butter in frying pan Add tomatoes, 6 tablespoons brown sugar or honey and salt. Cook very slowly until liquid evaporates. Be careful not to let tomatoes stick or scorch. Put mixture in baking dish. Top with buttered bread crumbs and remaining brown sugar or honey. Bake in preheated 350-degree oven until crumbs are browned about 20 minutes. This can also be done in a microwave - using a Pyrex dish - cook the tomatoes as instructed - cover with the crumbs and either bake in a convection oven or grill. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
