Baked Cherry Tomatoes

A lovely way to serve cherry tomatoes - this brings out their sweet flavour and is a wonderful dish to serve with chicken or even macaroni cheese!
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 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.
