Let me know what you think of this idea. What if I used a cup of mashed avocado in place of the mayonnaise. It would certainly make this cream and I am hoping it will bake well. You are a bunch of talented foodies and I would appreciate your thoughts on this.
This was originally a pie but I chose to omit the crust. I turned it into a casserole, rich in cheese with the possibility of additional vegetables. I am hoping to make this, next week and welcome any suggestions, you have.
Tomato Casserole inspired by Paula Deen
Ingredients:1/2 cup chopped green onions
10 fresh parsley leaves, chopped
3 tomatoes, sliced
1 cup grated cheddar
1 cup mozzarella, grated
1 cup mayonnaise or possibly avocado
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Using a medium-sized bowl, mix mayonnaise, cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, salt and pepper.
Layer the tomato slices, basil, and onion in a shallow pan that was sprayed with cooking oil. Spread the mayonnaise and cheese mixture on top of the tomatoes and bake for 30 minutes or until lightly browned. (I added one half cup of tomato juice to the mayo mix to make it more spreadable.)
To serve, cut into slices and serve warm.
Simple and filled with flavor.
