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.

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
