As sweet and delicious as summer's cherry tomatoes are raw, they become even more so when baked in this easy cobbler-style dish. Caramelized onion, garlic, and hot pepper reinforce the dish's savory side. A Gruyere drop-biscuit dough, spooned on top before the ensemble bakes, makes the cobbler work as a hearty side or a rustic main course.Cheese biscuits on top of the tomato filling soak up the juices.

    I ran into a lot of issues with this recipe. First of all, everything did not fit in my 2 qt dish. It barely fit in my 3 qt dish and I had a lot of boil over. I cooked the filling only and then I cooked the biscuits for the last 45 mins, which worked out perfectly. I followed the biscuit recipe right on and I ended up with a handful of dough and flour on the bottom of the bowl, so I added milk until it all came together. Add fresh thyme to the filling.

    This recipe was incredible. I've never really baked much but the biscuits were very easy and turned out amazing. Great mix of comfort food in the biscuits and freshness from the tomatoes. Made this for a friend and she LOVED it. Will definitely make this one again. Great for a party! Also, even better the next day! I didn't heat it, just ate it cold, and it was great.

    I made this last summer and although we liked it, the whole tomatoes were exploding hot juice as we tried to eat it! I made it again today and poked each tomato with the tip of a sharp knife. That helped a lot, but as others have commented the biscuit topping was done by about 45 minutes. Next time I would cook the filling 15 minutes or so, stir and then add the biscuits. I also used sharp cheddar cheese. Yummy! Doubling the onions wouldn't hurt, either.

    Love making this recipe. Made it last year a few times and couldn't wait for my cherry tomatoes to ripen this year so I could make it again. I just wondered if anyone knows how many calories are in this lucious cobbler. Thanks.

    I bought gruyere from Trader Joe's but when I grated it I found it somewhat bland, so I did half gruyere and half pecorino romano. The top was very brown after 45 minutes so I pulled it out. I would half each of the tomatoes next time so that the filling would be more blended. I'd probably double the onions, too. Overall, though, this is a brilliant idea and was a delicious dinner.

    Really delicious with in season tomatoes - there was some leftover which reheated well and was still as flavorful the next day. A great dish to bring to a summer dinner- would be good even at room temp.

    This recipe was delicious! I was short on cherry tomatoes & had to substitute slicing tomatoes which made it a little watery so I would not recommend that, but the flavor was great.

    I made this last night, but could not find a shallow 2 qt. dish to cook it in. I used a deep 2 qt dish, and the biscuit topping was done after 44 min. cooking time. Not all of the tomatoes were as done as I would have liked them to be, but the flavor of the dish was fabulous. I did not substitute anything, and was so glad that I bought the gruyere. Do not use anything other cheese or you will miss some of best tasting biscuit topping that goes so well with the tomatoes.
