Tomato Cobbler #TasteCreations

The Taste Creations blog hop is happy to share TOMATOES with you today!  Juicy garden tomatoes are starting to hit the Farmer's Market by the gallons so here is a chance to try some great food with seasonable vegetables.

For today's recipe, I thought I was going to be making a tomato tart for you, something I make every summer, but I didn't have any pie crust made up.  I did have a package of biscuit dough that I wanted to use up, thus this recipe was made!

  1. This looks super good! Very interesting and I'll admit I've never had anything like it! I bet my husband and even my kids would be really into this! I will have to give it a try! - Jeanine

    1. Jeanine, the brown sugar is crucial. I know people are weird about sugar these days but what it does to the onion and then later, the tomatoes is divine! It's good to have juices for the biscuits to soak up, too!

  2. Looks good! That's great that you were able to improvise a new recipe! Enjoy your summer!

  3. I love blog hops simply because there's so much that you can learn from the different bloggers that you visit. I really love this recipe and I think it's perfect for the summer! It's light and fresh!

  4. I love a good tomato but am currently cutting all bread out of my everyday eating. However I bet this would be just as good over a piece of grilled chicken

  5. Ooh, I have everything but the biscuit mix! We have gluten allergies though, so I will have to sub a gluten free biscuit recipe. Thanks!

  6. Oh so Yummy Terri, looks delicious, can't wait to try it.

  7. You can't go wrong with caramelised onion and baked tomatoes. Delicious! The adding of biscuits is something I've never thought of but looks so yummy. Love the creative recipe like this!

  8. This recipe looks so good and it is so unique. I love the taste and texture of tomatoes in any recipe so I am curious to try them with this flavor combination.

  9. I have never tried anything like this before, would be a great addition to so many meals and looks super tasty!

  10. This looks amazing and I think it'd be a good welcome addition to our menu at home :)

  11. Wow this looks absolutely delicious! I have never tried anything like it. Definitely adding it to my list of recipes to try.

  12. I love tomato cobbler! Using biscuit mix makes it so easy. I usually add extra cheese to mine...because cheese. :)

  13. Terri you never cease to amaze me! Tomato cobbler, who knew??? Yummo! Thank you so much for joining the gathering at Thoughts of Home on Thursday.

  14. LOL! I would love this but my husband would be so disappointed to see tomatoes as a cobbler. ;)
