"I did make this recipe and I'd adjusted recipe: added 1 finely chopped onion and 2 celery ribs, finely diced in addition to the tomatoes, sugar, pepper, butter & used 1/2 tsp. salt.

I used corn muffin mix instead of biscuit mix since I'd had it available and buttermilk instead of regular milk and used 1/4 cup buttermilk. The tomato mixture I'd brought to a boil and cooked 15 minutes, occasionally stirring. The batter I'd dropped in 5 to 6 small mounds onto tomato mixture and simmered at a reduced heat, covered, 20 minutes. Dumplings tested done with a cake tester after 20 minutes. This recipe is very tasty and I know I'll be using it again-maybe without the dumplings as I LOVE stewed tomatoes! delowenstein"

"Really easy and comforting...I never would of thought to make something like this...just enough seasoning. I think it would be real easy to do some variations with this recipe."

"Excellent side dish; I love stewed tomatoes and the little biscuits in the tomatoes made it quite a treat. Even my husband liked it (after I told him it wasn't strawberry shortcake!). Yes, I'll definitely make it again."

"When I first started as a school cook our head cook would add leftover grilled cheese to a can of tomatoes for our lunch. This reminds of that. Some cheese sprinkled on top would not be so bad,,haha"
