Swiss Tomato Bake

Swiss-top

I adapted this recipe from one I found in an old Specialties of Indiana cookbook.  It’s a very light entrée – nice for lunch with a small salad.

SWISS TOMATO BAKE

  • 1 cup cracker crumbs (Club crackers)
  • 2 Tblsp. melted butter
  • 1 cup of halved cherry tomatoes (or tomato slices)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tblsp. minced dry onions
  • ¾ cup sour cream
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • Dash of black pepper
  • 2 cups of shredded Swiss cheese (8 oz.)
  • Sprinkle of smoked paprika

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F

In an 8 inch pan place cracker crumbs and melted butter  Stir crumbs and butter together until blended, then press onto the bottom of the pan.  Place tomatoes on top of crust.

Since this was a light dish, I served it along with a peach cobbler for dessert.

  1. Looks and sounds delicious from the ingredients, as usual! I am a newer member of your blog. I was wondering if you have a cookbook published of your recipes, and if so where it is available. I’d love to buy one!

    1. Thank you so much for the nice compliments. No, I’ve never published a cookbook – my blog is all I have except for my personal notes that I’ve kept all these years.

      Thanks for following my blog. Lillian
