Tomato Pudding-Makes 6 Servings

Here is a warm winter dessert to use some of those tomatoes from the garden if you preserved them last summer.

1 cup brown sugar (or use brown sugar substitute for diabetics such as Sweet N Low)
1 cup tomato puree
1 loaf sliced bread (it calls for white but I would use wheat or multigrain for healthier choice) crusts removed, cubed
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly oil a medium size casserole dish. Combine the sugar and tomato puree ina small saucepan and simmer over medium heat 10 minutes.
Arrange the bread cubes evenly in the prepared dish. Pour the melted butter over the bread. Pour the tomato mixture over the bread and mix gently to evenly coat the bread.
Sprinkle top with cinnamon. Bake for 30 minutes.
