Tomato Pie

It's that time of year. Fresh tomatoes from the farmers market or, if you're lucky, from your own garden. The first time I heard about this pie, it sounded very strange. It was really good, though. Of course, I added some bacon, garlic and mozzarella cheese. I found another recipe for this but didn't care for it as much. However, I did steal the croutons idea from that one and changed to flavored instead of plain. It's awesome. Extremely flavorful and gets requested for every picnic we go to. WAIT A MINUTE!!!!! Do you think that's why I get invited? Enjoy!

This savory tomato pie is delicious! We see why Linda gets invited to every picnic. It's creamy, tangy, and seasoned to perfection. We love the crushed croutons in the pie. They absorb the juices and keep the pie from having a soggy bottom. The end result is similar in taste to a BLT, just minus the lettuce. Yum! When cut into the slice may not be the prettiest when served, but it's mighty tasty. The Test Kitchen

Ingredients

  • 1

  • 1 1/2 c
    flavored croutons, I like to use the garlic and herb flavor

    plum tomatoes, peeled and diced. you want a nice tomato base, so use more or less depending on size of tomato
  • 4
    green onions, sliced to preferred thickness; Use the white and the green parts (If you don't have green onion regular will work, just dice very small)
  • 1 c
    bacon, fried crispy and chopped
  • ·
    fresh basil, to taste or dried basil, to taste
  • 2-3 clove
    garlic, minced (I use more, but I really love garlic)
  • 1/2 tsp
    dried oregano
  • ·
    salt and pepper, to taste

How to Make Tomato Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Blind bake the pie shell on 425 F until light brown (about 10 minutes).
  2. Place croutons in a baggie and break into smaller pieces with a mallet. Then spread in bottom of pie crust. They will absorb excess juices from the tomatoes plus add additional flavor.
  3. Spread the diced tomatoes over the croutons.
  4. Sprinkle salt and pepper, crushed garlic, basil, oregano, onions, and bacon over the tomatoes.
  5. Mix mayo with the cheeses. Spread over the top to the edges.
  6. You can toss some additional bacon and onion on top for presentation.
  7. Bake at 350 F for approximately 25 minutes. When the top is nice and golden, it's done.
  8. Let cool for 10 to 15 minutes then dig in. It's wonderful when warm, but just as good at room temperature.
