We Loved It!! Was so easy and yummy! I used my Home grown tomatoes. Only thing I did diffrent was I added bacon bits. I will be making this again for sure! Thanks for sharing.

The flavor of this dish was very good, but I can only give the recipe a 3 star because when I pulled the pan out of the oven it was half full of watery liquid. It made for a very unappealing presentation. I wonder why no one else had this problem. I followed the recipe exactly. Maybe that result is to be expected, but it ruined the recipe for me.

I used romas and didn't add any salt as my husband is on a very low sodium diet. This was great! Even my 2 kids who only eat tomatoes in ketchup and pizza sauce ate this and loved kindergartener even had seconds! This is a very nice, quick way to use up our abundance of fresh garden tomatoes.

this is delicious! it is, as the other readers said, very wet, but who can complain about summer-tomato juicy-ness with sharp cheddar (yes, use sharp!). we used the home-made mayo recipe here and it was a true taste of summer. i suspect this would also "beef up" the taste of less-than-delicious tomatoes, which unfortunately is sometimes how they come from the grocery...

This was very good with my garden fresh tomatoes! My sons, 19 and 7 Loved it. Yes, it is juicy but add croutons or bread crumbs in the cheese if you prefer. The wateriness may depend on your tomatoes too!I did add a pesto/garlic seasoning sprinkled between the layers of tomatoes. I will make this again.

This was simple, delicious, and fresh. I added mozzarella instead of cheddar, and some fresh spinach. We loved it and will make it every time we have a plethora of tomatoes.

While looking for a new side to make with salmon this came up. Followed the recipe almost exactly. Didn't measure but probably used a TBL of mayonnaise for each layer and maybe slightly more cheese. The juicy goodness was perfect with grilled salmon! So tasty we licked our plates!
