It's 6 o'clock, what's for dinner? Innocent enough of a question in itself but after a long day of work, what is the answer? From my years of being on the road and facing this question on a daily basis I have compiled a reservoir of ideas. Recipes that are simple to create in a Tiny Home, long on flavor and sure to be among your favorites. For those of you that choose to make a meal in one pan or baking dish, lets get started!
Feel free to use a traditional pie pan or round casserole, just about anything that you can mold a single pie crust into to hold this marvelous mixture.Feel free to experiment after making this the first time as you may desire more or less of some ingredients. I make adjustments as sometimes I may not have on hand enough of one cheese and need to use more of another to fill the amounts required.
1 single pie crust (home made or store bought if short on time or ingredients)1 cup of any style of Mayonnaise or 1/2 cup mayo and 1/2 cup sour cream (my favorite)8 oz Cheddar cheese shredded (2 cups) separated into 2 bowls 1-1/2 cup and 1/2 cup1/4 tsp ground black pepper2-4 sliced scallions 4-6 ripe Italian plum tomatoes cored and sliced
I have always LOVED my Convection Microwave!! Small to heat, quick to warm up and all around efficient.With that said, pre-heat to 350Line baking pan with dough and pinch or fork crimp the edges, prick bottom and sides a few times with fork.
Bake 8-10 min till dough dries out and starts to puff. Remove and set aside.
While waiting, Mix in a bowl the followingMayo Cheese 1-1/2 cupPepperScallions
Here I sprinkle a small amount of the 1/2 cup of cheese in the bottom once crust is ready.
Alternate next with a row of tomato slices then the bowl mixture until all ingredients are used.
I try to finish with the last layer being tomatoes and then lastly sprinkle the remaining cheddar cheese.
Bake 30-40 minutes until golden brown and the tomato layer is melted and shriveling.
Let stand to cool 10-15 min then prepare to devour most of it!Any remains can be easily reheated for further meals or snacks.Once our garden is overflowing this is a staple during the summer. If you have a farmers market feel free to experiment with different tomato varieties.
