Escalloped Tomatoes

December 18, 2013Teresa

I LOVE this Escalloped Tomatoes dish! Any kind of tomato casserole is top on my list anyway, and Escalloped Tomatoes is scrumptious with lots of tomatoes topped with several seasonings, Italian-style bread crumbs, Asiago cheese and then drizzled with olive oil before baking. It really turned out quite tasty and wonderful.

I was wanting to use up a batch of tomatoes a few weeks ago and started looking through my cookbooks to see what I could come up with. I finally found one from a friend and used that recipe as the idea for this savory side dish. It’s made very differently from my Scalloped Tomatoes recipe but tastes just as great.

4C Brand now makes gluten free bread crumbs in plain and Italian flavors these days if you prefer to make this casserole gluten free. I usually pick them up at Wal-Mart. I find that storing them in the freezer, allows the bread crumbs to last longer.

If you’re looking for a great way to use up tomatoes and want a very wonderful, hearty side dish for almost any kind of meat, then consider making up an Escalloped Tomatoes casserole. I served this marvelous side dish with Baked Garlic Asiago Chicken and the two paired wonderfully. You may also want to consider using this as a great side dish for the holidays.
