Tomato pie is one way to use up some of those fresh tomatoes. Tomato pie is easy and delicious.  We love these pies in summer and I make a lot of them.  Serve this tomato pie along with a couple other fresh garden vegetables for a wonderful meal.  The spices along with the fresh tomatoes make for a wonderful summer treat. It’s difficult to think anything but pleasant thoughts while eating a homegrown tomato.” ~~ Lewis Grizzard

Ingredients for Tomato Pie

1 deep dish pie shell (I used a bought one, can make your own)

tomatoes, (about 3 cups if using chopped tomatoes) sliced

green onions (can use regular chopped onions) enough to make about 1/2 cup, chopped

1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano

1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil

Salt & Pepper

2 to 3 tablespoons mayonnaise

5 pieces bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled

Shredded cheese (about 1 1/2 cups of your choice) I used shredded parmesan, swiss, and mexican 1/2 cup of each

Directions

Cook empty pie crust for about 10 minutes in 400 degree oven. Be sure to punch holes in the bottom of the crust. Remove from oven and add a layer of cheese, onion, and tomatoes.  Sprinkle with salt, pepper, oregano and basil. Continue layering until ingredients are gone except for 1/2 cup of cheese.  Mix together the crumbled bacon, mayo, and cheese and spread on top of the pie. Sprinkle with extra cheese if you want.   Cook in preheated 350 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes.  Let stand for at least 15 minutes before cutting.  (Note: I chopped my tomatoes and let them drain in a colander for at least 30 minutes before adding to pie) Most people slice the tomatoes. Don’t go overboard on the mayo and try to use firm tomatoes.  You don’t want the pie to be juicy.  ENJOY!
