Since I'm from Tennessee and since I love green tomatoes that's how the recipe got it's name. If you want to change the amounts of the seasonings, go right ahead. When turning over, use a pancake turner so coating won't come off. Submitted to "ZAAR" on August 5th, 2007.
Despite it's title there is no pastry in this dish. When we lived in Portugal we had this often, sometimes on it's own and at other times with pork chops or chicken. It's a wonderful blend of two of Portugal's favorite vegetables.
Tonight we will have this with baked salmon.
I use the Marie Callendar's copykat crust recipe and I used 1/2 Extra Sharp Cheddar and 1/2 Cabot's Seriously Sharp Hunter's Cheese (WalMart carries this)
Very very delicious! Found decades ago from a B & B but never tried till today!
So elegant and so simple. This is my little adaptation of the classic Caprese salad...everything is the same except that the fresh basil has been replaced by purchased (or homemade if you have it on hand) pesto sauce. I like this version more because I think the salty/garlicky/nutty pesto does more for the other two ingredients.
This is wonderful to make with your garden-ripe summer tomatoes! To save time prepare the mayonnaise mixture up to a day in advance. Since we love lots of spice, I use Tabasco brand spicy brown mustard but any brand brown mustard will do for this recipe, I also add in a pinch of cayenne pepper too! Recipe can easily be doubled.
A starter or side dish, but I could eat these as a main course with some good bread. I have been making these for years now but mainly in the summer months. Its a Delia Smith recipe. I probably use more garlic. If you made these a few times you will find you don't have to refer to the recipe anymore, just get your roasting tin full of the tomatoes and add the seasonings. The dressing is easy to remember too. This is a top summer dish. Can be made in advance.
We love summer tomatoes and I came up with this recipe with ingredients on hand, I now make it all the time. Its best made with home grown tomatoes and real parmesan cheese ( not the kind in a container)
A MUST MAKE! This recipe is great to make with tomatoes that are red to green! My Husband told me I have to give these a real good name. He was giving these a names but they would have gone off the page. He won 't eat Parmesan cheese or goat cheese and he had both and just loved it! After I told him what cheese are in it he went back for seconds and thirds. I don 't care what anyone rates this at because Mister Picky gave it his top rating! And that's all I care about! BUT if he likes this much it everyone in the world will! These tomatoes had a salty, cheesy, crisp crust. The tomato was warm and juicy. The goat cheese gave it a nice creamy sharpness. Onions and garlic gave it a subtle sweetness. I did use tomatoes that weren't completely ripe. But go for what you have be it green or red. Hey if any of you have a better name for this recipe give me an e-mail. Bursting Tomatoes came from eating them right after being cooked they just burst in your mouth! This is a copycat recipe of a dish I had when vacationing Southwest.
I had never heard of this dish before tasting it last summer at my fiancee's house. Then, everywhere I went it began to pop up. Its simple, down-to-earth charm depends upon the freshness of the ingredients- I can't wait for tomato season to return!
