This dish is traditionally served with black eyed peas on New Year's Day in Virginia.
Melt the butter in a skillet. Add the onions, celery and pepper and cook until just soft.
Add the tomatoes, sugar, bread and seasonings. Mix thoroughly.
Lightly oil a medium casserole dish. Pour in the tomato mixture and bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes or until it begins to bubble.
Cool slightly before
