The tomato toast is a cooked and broiled appetizer prepared with svory seasoned tomatoes served atop toasts. Flavored with worcestershire sauce, the tomato toast is prepped with cheese and parsley. Lovelyand appetizing, these tomato toasts are one of my favorite appetizers to serve!
  Finely chopped onion 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)

  Italian style tomatoes 1 Can (10 oz), drained
  Sugar 1 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄8 Teaspoon

Add onion to heated butter in a heavy saucepan and cook until tender, stirring occasionally.
Force enough of the drained tomatoes through a sieve to yield 1 1/2 cups.
Add to onion with sugar and salt; cook, stirring occasionally, until liquid evaporates and mixture is thick (about 25 minutes).
Stir a small amount of tomato mixture into egg yolk; blend thoroughly and return to saucepan.
Cook and stir 5 minutes.
Mix in worcestershire sauce and half of cheese; spread generously on toast quarters.
Sprinkle half of appetizers with the remaining cheese and half with the parsley.
