Fried Green Tomato Casserole



6 medium green tomatoes, sliced in rounds
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup Ritz Cracker crumbs, divided
1 cup grated Cheddar cheese, divided
6 Tbsp. butter, divided


Not actually fried, this is a delicious use of green tomatoes:
Layer half the tomatoes in a greased shallow dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add 1/2 cup cracker crumbs and 1/2 cup cheese. Dot with 3 tablespoons butter (in small pieces). Layer remaining tomatoes. Add seasonings and remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Add remaining 1/2 cup crumbs and 3 tablespoons butter. Bake, covered, at 350 F for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake 10 minutes or until brown. Serves 6.
