Scalloped Tomatoes

One of our favorite tomato recipes comes from the Joy of Cooking.  It's so good at this time of year with all the fresh tomatoes.
 Cut up the tomatoes into chunks and grate pepper on top.  This was two tomatoes, a Goldie and an unknown since this was just for two of us eating.

 Dice an onion and saute until soft in a good pat of butter.  When done turn off heat and add a tablespoon of brown sugar.
 Add bread crumbs to that and stir it all up to moisten the crumbs.
 Sprinkle the onion crumb mixture on top of the tomatoes and bake for 30 min at 350º.
 It comes out bubbly and browned up and is delicious.
Here's the official recipe from Joy of Cooking for 6 servings:
3 cups diced tomatoes
3 T butter
1/4 cup onion chopped finely
1 T brown sugar
1 t salt
1/4 t pepper
grating of nutmeg (optional)
1 3/4 cup bread crumbs
