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.

How to Make Garden Fresh Tomato and Bacon Pie

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • 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!
