Tomato and Squash Bake

That is a slice of heaven or wherever you hang your hat spiritually

Guess what is in overabundance in the garden right now?

Tomato and Squash Tart

  • 2-3 large tomatoes sliced thin
  • 2-3 yellow squash sliced into thin long pieces
  • 2 potatoes sliced thin
  • 1 small red onion sliced paper thin
  • 6-8 basil leaves
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 4 mushrooms sliced thin
  • 5 eggs beaten with 1 cup buttermilk

Saute onion in butter until translucent. Add mushrooms and potatoes and cook until mushrooms begin to brown. Add 1/4 cup white wine and cook until evaporated while deglazing the pan. In a large greased casserole dish, spoon the potato mixture evenly across the bottom. Sprinkle with some cheese then pour 1/4 of the egg over.  Tear some of the basil by hand and sprinkle into egg. Add the squash in a single layer on top and pour the rest of the egg over it. Add the remaining basil then cover with the tomatoes, pressing down slightly to secure them into the egg. Cover with remaining cheese and bake in the oven at 360 degrees until done, about 25 minutes.

    This looks yummy! I haven’t had squash yet this summer. Or zucchini. What is wrong with me! I’ll be fixing that ASAP. 🙂

  2. Oh wow, this looks amazing.

  3. You keep showing me summer food as the fain continues to fall in the currently unsummery Vendee. Whatever, it gives me an idea of what summer could be like:)

    This is a dish I would love. My squash isn’t quite full grown, but when it is, I know what I’ll do with it. It’s after midnight, I could so easily stay up for a helping of this fabulous creation… Thanks, Rufus.

    The tomatoes look so delicious, Greg. There is really nothing like fresh, home-grown tomatoes right off the vine, is there? I’m trying my hand at the American Mozzarella from Chgo John’s blog today!

  8. Both tomatoes and squash are blooming now. Won’t be long til we can have this for breakfast 😀

  9. ChgoJohn says:

    This looks so good, Greg, especially knowing those are your tomatoes being used. My plants are a good month ahead of last year, although the heat has hurt them a bit.Time will tell just how badly.

  10. Perfect Summer food! Very nice!

  11. Cheese and seasonal veggies – delicious, whichever way you slice it!

  12. Wow! I really like squash and your tomatoes and basil are such an addition.

  13. I’m so on a tomato and squash kick right now. Perfect recipe!

  14. Karen says:

    This recipe looks and sounds great. You were brave baking with all the heat you have been having.

  15. I am like Kristy, no zucchini or squash yet. That needs to be corrected ASAP

  16. Mad Dog says:

    Those kind of vegetables represent the best kid of abundance – excellent!

  18. Young Wifey says:

    This is a little different than how we do ours, but yours still sounds and looks delicious!

  19. billpeeler says:

    Oh my dear lord – there’s not much better than tomatoes fresh from the garden. Even though I don’t have my own tomatoes, I would seriously love to make this, cause I would seriously love to eat the heck out of it —–

  20. ambrosiana says:

    Squash the summer vegetable that is the gift that can keep on giving. Awesome!

  22. TasteFood says:

    Hooray for summer abundance!

  23. This looks great! I just made a tomato and squash tart last week, but mine had a crust. I like that his one makes it’s own so to speak. Wish I had your glut of tomatoes!

  24. Lovely summer tomatoes!! Egad.. mine is still a sad little plant..

  25. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack? I think this dish has no boundaries. Yum!

  26. Wow – that looks so good! We aren´t growing squash but I am sure I could substitute courgettes/zucchini instead…

  27. I’ve always had mixed feeling about squash (has to be prepare certain ways for me), but I’m completely down with this recipe.

  28. BBQueen says:

    Wow — all my favorite veggies in one lovely dish. Definitely gonna give it a try!

  29. egg me on says:

    Tomatoes, tomatoes … everywhere tomatoes. Love it. Makes me jealous. This is like a fancy-pants pizza. Do you hold your pinkie out while eating this? 😉

  30. Hi Greg and Katherine. I know this particular recipe didn’t make the list for the start of your tomato week, but wanted to let you know that I made this dish while my family was visiting this weekend. Everyone loved it, and my sister said it was the best thing we made while she was here. It turned out great!

  31. I will try this recipe Sunday night. I happen to have all the ingredients!
