    Never heard of it. And I have to admit it sounds really weird. But it would not be the first thing I have eaten the sounded weird and turned out to be delicious.

    it is true Southern soul food.

    If you want to kick it up a notch, sub the tomatoes with rotel /green chilis
    If you know how to make gravy this is a snap.

    My biscuit recipe
    2 cups self rising flour
    3 tablespoon baking powder
    1/2 stick butter/ wife uses crisco. her biscuits are better than mine
    cup of milk
    cut in the butter.
    mix it with a butter knife
    The trick here is to mix everything with out handling the dough a lot . NO KNEADING
    turn the mix out on your greased cookie sheet, pres down with your hand to make it 3/4'' high
    cut square biscuits or use a round cookie cutter. or a drinking glass
    preheated oven at 425. till golden brown.
    remove from oven cut in half and put the gravy on top
