Not a "duck recipe, but thought was worth passing on.
My aunt fixed this for Sunday Dinner the last time we visited. She said she just got the recipe from one of Paula Deen's cook books, but it was delicious. I was curious if anyone has had this, and would be interested in hearing any improvements on the recipe.
Servings: 6 servings
Ingredients 1 cup grated mozzarella 1 9-inch prebaked deep dish pie shell 1/2 cup chopped green onion 10 fresh basil leaves, chopped 4 tomatoes, peeled and sliced 1 cup grated cheddar 1 cup mayonnaise salt and pepper
Directions Preheat oven to 350 degrees. First, blanch the tomatoes and slice. Place the tomatoes in the collinder to drain. Using a medium sized bowl, mix mayonnaise, cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, salt and pepper. Layer the tomato slices, basil, and onion in pie shell. Season with salt and pepper. Spread the mayonnaise and cheese mixture on top of the tomatoes and bake for 30 minutes or until lightly browned. To serve, cut into slices and serve warm.

Why WOULDN'T you cook with mayo. JK. It must be a Southern thing, because I can think of several dishes that are cooked with mayo. I couldn't tell you how it tastes without, but couldn't be bad, considering the other ingredients. Definately not something you want to have to often (probably about 1,000,000,000 calories), but it's pretty tasty every now and again.
