Missy Wombat's Note:
This recipe is an RSC entry. My brother never used to like tomatoes until our desperate mother suggested that he sprinkle sugar on them. He still eats them with sugar to this day. It was this that inspired me to use tomatoes in the topping. However any old tomato will not do. The tomatoes I have used are decidedly not acidic, quite small, very tasty and have their own natural sweetness. They must be fully ripe. This recipe is very simple and it is easy to adjust the quantities if you need more of any of the parts. Bon appetit!
