Yum! This recipe is delicious, and so easy...use store bought crusts to save time. I love making this with my tomatoes from the garden..I have made this many times, so it is tested and approved by anyone I ever served it to. I always add more bacon, who doesn't like bacon right?..I change up the type of cheese also, and usually add a bit more.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

I will update the photo the next time I make it ( which will be as soon as tomatoes are ready this summer).



The recipe came from my TOH Feb/ March issue.

Cook:

Ingredients

1
unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)
1 lb
bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 large
tomato, peeled and sliced or 2 - 3 small
1 c
(4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese ( i always add a bit more )
3
eggs, seperated
3/4 c
sour cream
1/2 c
all purpose flour
1/2 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
pepper
paprika

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Line unpricked pastry shell with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 450° for 5 minutes. Remove foil. Bake 5 minutes longer. Cool completely.


I use homemade crust for two pies, and double ingredients for filling, as this is great leftover meal. Just re heat in microwave.
2
Sprinkle bacon over the crust. Top with tomato and cheese. In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks, sour cream, flour and salt until smooth. In another large bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. Fold into sour cream mixture; spread over cheese. Sprinkle with paprika.
3
Bake at 350° for 30 - 45 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand 5-10 minutes before cutting.

Mine is always baked in 30 minutes.
