Have You Ever Had...

Tomato Pie? It's very good. I fixed that tonight along with open face Chili sandwiches topped with Cole Slaw. The tomatoes were fresh from our garden. Here is the recipe. ( It's by Paula Dean )

Tomato Pie (By Paula Dean)

4 tomatoes, peeled & sliced
10 fresh basil leaves, chopped
1/2 C. chopped green onion
1 (9-inch) pre baked deep dish pie shell
1 cup grated mozzarella
1 C. grated cheddar
1 C. mayonnaise
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place tomatoes in a colander in the sink in 1 layer. Sprinkle with salt & allow to drain for 10 minutes.
Layer the tomato slices, basil, & onion in pie shell. Season with salt & pepper.
Combine the grated cheeses & mayonnaise together. Spread mixture on top of the tomatoes & bake for 30 minutes or til lightly browned.
( I didn't use Pie Crust this time. Came out great.)

I'm working towards filling a box with the Bottle Bags I'm crocheting. (I made 2 more of them.) But I need some more colors. Then we can take them to the hospital to give them to cancer outreach.

I don't have any plans for tomorrow, except, Laundry, Cook & Crochet. We're suppose to get rain tomorrow. So it might be good shopping weather. ;-) I'll have to check Dept. Store Ads before heading to bed tonight.

  2. That sounds really good! Thanks for the recipe. We don't have a garden, but someone has given us tomatoes from theirs and said to come back and get some more. (I might just do that now!)

  3. Tina,

    You'll love it. I didn't make or use a crust. I just put it in the pan. I used a glass pie pan. Let me know how it turns out if you make it.
