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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 8 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
  • 1/4 cup cold butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon buttermilk


  • 1. In a large saucepan, combine cornstarch and sugar. Stir in water until smooth. Stir in tomatoes. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Stir in the green pepper, salt and pepper; keep warm.
  • 2. In a bowl, combine the first five topping ingredients. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cheese and buttermilk just until moistened.
  • 3. Transfer tomato mixture to a greased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish. Drop topping into eight mounds onto hot tomato mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in biscuits comes out clean. Yield: 6 servings.
