This garden fresh pie is sure to please your bacon and tomato lovers. A longtime friend shared this recipe with me. I couldn't wait to make it. And I was not disappointed when I did. She found the recipe on "The Southern Lady Cooks" thesouthernladycooks.com/...mato-pie

I've tweaked with some very minor changes.

I used my "100 Year Old Pie Crust" recipe that always makes any pie better. I used 1/2 of the ingredients for the pie crust. It made a very nice thick flakey crust.

2With fork spear bottom of crust. Bake crust for about 10 minutes in preheated oven.

3Remove crust from oven. Reduce heat to 350 degrees.

4Now add a layer of cheese, onion, and tomatoes to pie crust. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, oregano and basil. Continue layering until ingredients are gone except for 1/2 cup of cheese. I had 2 layers.

NOTE: Chop tomatoes and drain in a colander for at least 30 minutes before adding to pie. You can slice the tomatoes if desired. Use firm ripe tomatoes. You don’t want the pie to be juicy

5Combine the crumbled bacon, mayonnaise, and cheese: spread on top of the pie. NOTE: Add'l mayo may be needed but don’t go overboard. Sprinkle with extra cheese if desired.

6Bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Let stand for at least 15 minutes before cutting. Enjoy!
