- Ready In:
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
- 2 tablespoons onions, minced
- 1 -2 tablespoon fresh herb (basil or parlsey, can substitute 1/4 tsp dried)
- fresh ground black pepper
- 1 1⁄2 cups baking mix such as Bisquick (good clones or substitutes on Zaar)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄4 cup buttermilk
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 4 -5 ripe tomatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch slices (best if using center slices drained 10 minutes if extra juicy)
- 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese (I double this amount) or 2 tablespoons romano cheese (I double this amount)
- Preheat oven 350 degrees.
- Thoroughly mix mayonnaise, cheddar cheese, minced onions, herbs and pepper; set aside.
- In large mixing bowl, mix together baking mix, baking powder, buttermilk and water.
- With floured fingers, pat mixture into the bottom and sides of a lightly greased and floured 9" pie pan.
- Bake crust 10 minutes. Remove from oven.
- Arrange tomato slices on top of crust to completely cover; cut smaller pieces of tomato to fill in gaps. At this point you may want to lightly salt the tomatoes.
- Spread mayonnaise mixture over tomatoes and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
- Bake until biscuit is nicely browned and top is bubbly, about 30 to 40 minutes.
- Cut into wedges and served still warm or if made ahead, briefly reheat in low oven.
- Refrigerate leftovers.

Holy snail tails! I wish (and hope) Gailanng is around! THIS was amazing! I am scared to go into the kitchen - the pie sits and waits and looks at me ----with it's devilish, "come-hither-look" - begging me to come in, and devour more of it's contents. "NO! I sail out to it, no! - I will not go in and eat yet another slice." <br/>You decide. Go ahead and make it. Maybe ..just maybe - you're better then me.
LOVE THIS! This is so delicious. I used Arrowhead Mills Organic Buckwheat Pancake & Waffle Mix because it's what I had on hand. It made for a nice filling crust. Who knew that tomatoes, cheese, some herbs, and mayonnaise would be so simple yet so heavenly. Made for P-A-R-T-Y 2009. Thanks for posting this gailanng!

I'm just me, mother, grandmother...friend to many and a Louisianian. My Cajun and French Quarter Italian descent afforded me exposure to some of the best of foods. My passions are my family, decorating, cooking and gardening. Those very passions push me into constant awareness with always looking for something new to delight the senses, thus my favorite idiom...Inspire me, puuuullllllleeeeeeease! ...and I mean it, too. God Bless America!
