We have so many generous friends with gardens who send fresh vegetables and herbs 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.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

All the wonderful, savory flavor of a BLT in a delicious summer pie. The filling is creamy, cheesy, and tangy. The smoky bacon bits throughout and the wonderful mix of herbs and tons of flavor to this tomato pie. Sprinkling Panko crumbs on top add a lovely texture to the pie. Perfect for a summer cookout.
