Wash a half dozen ripe red tomatoes. Cut the top from each and remove
about the half of the inside of tomato. Sprinkle a very tiny pinch of
sugar in each. This small quantity of sugar is not noticed, but
counteracts the acidity of the tomato. To one and one-half cups of
soft bread crumbs add one small finely minced onion and season highly
with salt and pepper, also add one teaspoon of chopped parsley. Mix
all together and fill the tomatoes with the mixture. Place a small bit
of butter on each tomato. Place in a bake dish containing a half cup
of water, a piece of butter, one teaspoonful of sugar, a sprig of
parsley and pepper and salt to season. Stand in a hot oven and bake
from 25 to 30 minutes. The centres which were removed from tomatoes
may be utilized in various ways.
