Simple Vegetable Sides – Tomato and Onion Bake

It’s funny how we come across recipes. I have been making this tomato and onion bake for a few years now, it makes a fantastic side for a nice piece of steak but pairs well with almost anything meaty in my opinion. I originally came across this recipe in a newspaper while at work with
