Add tomatoes, breaking them up a little bit with a wooden spoon; stir in all but 1/2 T. of the sugar + the seasoned pepper. Simmer till juices are almost gone, then break in 3 slices of the toast & crumble in the bacon. Pour into a lightly buttered 8" x 8" baking dish or casserole; turn oven on at 350ļ. Make crumbs from the remaining 2 slices of toast, & cover the top of the tomatoes. Sprinkle on the last 1/2 T. of brown sugar & a tiny bit more seasoned pepper. Bake 20 - 30 minutes or till bubbly & the top is golden brown. Serves 4 to 6; can be doubled in a 2 qt. casserole. This is an old time favorite, deservedly so.

For Judy in Montana
I remember my mother making the tomato and bread dish for my dad. I think she used a can of tomatoes, broke up bread, added a pat of butter, salt and pepper and I don't think anything else. I never liked it so never paid much attention. I hope this is what you are looking for.
