Tomato Gravy or Creamed Tomatoes

Tomato Gravy over Cubed French Bread w/ a side of tomatoes and cukes

I remember the first time I tasted this I thought it was so good. My mother-in-law used to make it often with her own garden tomatoes but it's just as good using a store-bought can of juice which is what I used tonight.

Tomato Gravy or Creamed Tomatoes

1 qt. tomato juice or stewed tomatoes
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 tbsp. flour
2 tbsp. sugar
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup milk
salt & pepper

Heat tomato juice and baking soda. (whisk it together)
Combine flour, sugar and water in a small bowl. Stir well until no lumps of flour are left.
Pour this mixture into hot juice while stirring.
Simmer and continue to stir until thickened.
Add milk and heat through.
Season with salt & pepper.
Serve over bread, biscuits or toast.

My husband would probably like this one ~ I'm not much of a tomato person.
Thanks for sharing!
