Kim's StoryWe have so many generous friends with gardens who send fresh vegetables our way this time of year. I love tomatoes, my husband loves bacon so I concocted a bacon tomato pie. Served with a salad, it hits the spot on a warm summer day. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
pie crust shell
tomatoes, peeled, sliced thick
bacon, cut up, cooked
cheddar cheese, shredded
1Bake pie shell for 5 minutes at 425 degrees. "Fork" crust to keep it from rising up. Reduce heat to 400 degrees.
2Fry bacon and add onion. Cook till tender. Drain, set aside.
3Place tomatoes in browned pie shell. Combine salt, pepper and basil flakes. Sprinkle over tomatoes. Place bacon and onions over tomatoes.
4Mix mayonnaise and cheddar cheese. Spread and seal over pie. Bake for 35 minutes until cheese melts and is golden brown. Cool before cutting.
