More About This Recipe

  • If there’s any type of recipe I love the most, it’s the multi-tasker. You know, the ones that are one thing for dinner tonight and can be made into something totally different for tomorrow’s lunch? Or the ones that can be one thing or another thing, depending on how you need to use them?

    Let me explain.

    You see, I love me a biscuit now and again. Honestly, who doesn’t? But sometimes, I don’t need a biscuit – I need pizza dough or a pie crust. Enter this lovely Buttermilk Parsley Biscuit recipe.

    Biscuit dough is one of the easiest doughs you’ll ever make – in about 10 minutes, you have a cohesive dough, and about 10 minutes after that, you have biscuits. Or pizza dough. Or pie crust. Whatever. It’s that simple, and there’s no catch, save that biscuit dough makes a fine pie crust for this Tomato Pie.

    The savory flavor and fluffy texture of the Buttermilk Parsley Biscuits surrounding the sweet, tangy, cheesiness of this wonderful Tomato Pie is an awakening for your taste buds, especially if you’ve never tried tomato pie before. Layers of fresh, ripe, juicy tomatoes topped with a creamy mixture of cheddar cheese and mayonnaise (yes, mayonnaise) atop a bed of buttery biscuit pie crust? Your mouth will be ever thankful you introduced it to this magic.

    If you’re not a fan of the biscuit pie crust thing, make the Tomato Pie with your own favorite crust. Or, if the whole Tomato Pie thing is too strange for you, make biscuits with the dough. It’s a win-win situation, really. And if you do decide to go all out and make the biscuit crust and the pie, you’ll have a delicious dinner in an hour flat. That, my friends, is a win-win-win.
