    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
    2. To Make Crust: In a medium bowl blend flour and butter or margarine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add egg and blend just until dough begins to clump. Press dough onto the bottom of a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish (dough will be thin). Bake in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes, until lightly golden. Let cool and set aside (Note: Keep oven on at same heat.)
    3. To Make Filling: Place tomatoes, reserved oil, garlic and oregano in a blender or food processor. Chop finely. Blend in eggs. Add cream cheese (should be room temperature) and blend all until smooth. Add sour cream and blend until all mixed together.
    4. Transfer mixture to a medium bowl and stir in green onion. Season with salt and pepper to taste and pour filling into reserved crust. Bake in the preheated oven until filling puffs up and is light brown, about 20 minutes. Cool to room temperature and cut into squares. Serve.

    I made this recipe for Thanksgiving. It was wonderful. I omitted the crust and just served the squares. Thank you so much!  -  04 Feb 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was very disappointing. I tried this for a New Year Party and no one cared for it. Not something I would make again.  -  12 Mar 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a very good adult taste and is a challenging food-stuff. I wouldn't make it again, though, because it was a bit thick (especially the pastry).  -  08 Oct 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
