Was born in Chowan County and an old family recipe has been lost.
The really old timers have all passed away and no one in the family
knows the recipe...I found some recipes on line but the ingredients don't seem to match with the taste that I remember...
Our old recipe seemed to have leftover biscuits as an ingredient and it was a sweet pudding..
Does anyone know the old recipe????

I DO NOT have a recipe but would be very interested in it if you did find it. Really sounds good!

Tomato Pudding
1 quart cooked fresh or canned tomatoes

6 to 8 leftover biscuits or day-old bread

Tear biscuits or bread into bite-size pieces. Combine all ingredients and pour into a greased casserole dish. Bake at 325F. for 20 minutes.

My grandmother use to make this tomatoe dish and I loved it!! I never knew what it was called and finally gave up finding the recipe. I was in my teens when she passed away and at that age it never occured to me to ask for her recipe. She prepared it on the stove. Thank you for this information!

Ok lol I was hoping for a response before I started preparing this I cheated and bought bread crumbs in a box but I do not know how much bread crumbs equal one bisquit. I am going to assume one biscuit is about a half cup lol.

this is going to be interesting also do you serve this warm or cold..

Oh Sunny I copied those recipes from the Internet. I haven't a clue what the answer is to your question!

Hoping someone replies!

Even if no one responds you are still obligated to let us know how it turns out for ya.
