A Cozy Tomato Bread Pudding Even Easier Than Grilled Cheese

We’re in prime tomato glow-up. A quick stroll through the farmer’s market is all the proof you need. I rarely return from my Sunday shopping without a basket (yes, I carry an actual basket) overflowing with tomatoes of all varieties: big contorted heirlooms, plump Cherokee Purples, vibrant Green Zebras, and (my favorite) ruby red cherry tomatoes.

With tomatoes at their peak, the possibilities are endless. Enjoy them simply, like this version drizzled with brown butter. Or stack into a towering BLT. You can make sauce, either no-cook or a low-and-slow version. Or, if you’re looking to preserve the fresh flavors of summertime, try tomato jam.
