We all know the holidays season is full of traditions, like oohing and ahhing over Dad’s lights and making Thanksgiving Pizza (in my family at least!). We looked in the Tillamook archives and found a Tillamook tradition all the way from the 1940’s – a recipe for “Redhot Toast”!

Redhot Toast
8 servings

2½ cups (1 large can) tomatoes
1 cup water
2 bay leaves
1 clove garlic, sliced
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
6 cloves
2 dried chili peppers
Few celery tops
2 onions, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
2 tablespoons shortening
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 cup Tillamook Cheese, grated
8 slices toast

Simmer tomatoes, water, seasonings, and vegetables in a covered saucepan for 1 hour. Put through a sieve. Thicken with mixture of the melted shortening, flour, salt, and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to boil and cook for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and add Tillamook Cheese. Serve on toast.

What do you think of this recipe? I love seeing how recipes and traditions change over the years! For more vintage recipes from Tillamook, check out this recipe for Fried Seafood Squares or a few from a recipe booklet from all the way back in 1934.
