Biscuit-Topped Tomato Casserole Recipe
This is one of my favorite ways to prepare fresh tomatoes from our garden. Since it's just my husband and me, I sometimes halve the tomato mixture, then make the rest of the topping into garlic-cheese drop biscuits to eat with other meals.—Jayme Buzard, Wichita, Kansas
