Chattanooga Tomato Pie


One of my friends gave me this recipe, and it is a wonderful way to use up those yummy tomatoes this summer! Tina is a fabulous artist, as well as a great cook, check her artwork out here.

I, being the queen of tweaking recipes, had to add my own spin to it. It was juicy and delicious, reminded me a bit of a pizza, but much more flavorful!

Here is the original recipe, thanks Tina!

1 c. Bisquick
1/3 c. milk
Thickly sliced tomatoes
Sweet basil
Lemon pepper
1/4 c. mayonnaise
5/8 c. sour cream
1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese
3 tbsp. finely chopped onion
Garlic powder to taste
*I added about 1/2 tsp onion powder
*I added 1/2 tsp red onion flakes

Combine Bisquick with milk (I added salt, pepper and garlic powder) and, with floured fingers, pat into bottom of greased 10-inch pie pan or quiche dish. Bake at 450 degrees for 5 minutes. Top with layer of thickly sliced tomatoes. Sprinkle generously with basil and pepper.

Combine mayonnaise, sour cream and Parmesan, onion and garlic, then spread over tomatoes. Bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes (I baked for 40 minutes then browned using the broiler)

How can I say no to something that tastes like pizza, but can be whipped up in a jiffy? Sounds yummy!

This looks awfully good to me, Cheryl. The only thing better than delicious, is quick and delicious. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary

Love the ease of this dish. I will definitely try with Jersey tomatoes. Always have bisquick on hand:)

and just what if i only want to use half a cup of sour cream? what then? :) 5/8 of a cup seems so random, but i'll take your word for it--this looks awesome. :)

Apricot Walnut Bread

My Husband bought a huge package of dried non sulfured apricots and I was sick of seeing them in the fridge mocking me.  I don't eat...
