Appetizer Tomato Cheese Bread

I found this recipe a few years ago in a dairy cookbook, and it has become a family favorite. My husband, Wayne, and our two children are mostly meat-and-potato eaters, but I don't hear any complaints when I make this bread! —Penney Kester, Springville, New York

    This is the first time I prepared this recipe! When I sampled it, I did find it very tasty and quite moist! I used 1/8 tsp. ground sage and 1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning, CRUSHED between my hands. I did not have regular tomatoes, so I used a 14.5-oz can WELL- DRAINED Italian-style STEWED tomatoes, then a 14.5-oz. can of diced tomatoes, drained well. I found that it WAS not easy to knead the dough; I greased and floured my baking pan, and pressed the dough into prepared pan, using enough flour to evenly distribute the dough! The next time, I just may use MORE biscuit mix and gauge the amount of milk to add! It took me a while to spread the dough in the pan! I did allow the dough to sit after mixing it with the milk! I used a medium saucepan to saut? 1 medium onion, finely diced with the butter until tender. I arranged the canned tomatoes evenly over the dough, then spooned the sour cream mixture over the tomatoes. I used 1/2 to 3/4 tsp. paprika, rather than just sprinkle the paprika over the mixture! I baked 25 minutes at 400o F. I allowed the bread to really cool off before I cut it! It did cut nicely! I'd say that I got at least 12 to 15 servings! I put the squares in a plastic container with a cover and chilled the squares in the container. Thank you for sharing this recipe! I thought that this would be nice to take to a holiday party-it certainly has the red color! delowenstein
