My garden was full of these beautiful tomatoes so it was time to make a tomato pie. An addition of ranch mix takes this to a whole new level. :)

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Tomato pie is always a favorite summertime recipe when tomatoes are at their best. This tomato pie recipe is out of this world good. It has an explosion of flavor! The ranch and cheese are the glue that melts everything together (and tastes so good). Fresh tomatoes are complemented by chunks of smoky bacon and sweet onions. As if that wasn't enough, the pie is topped with buttery cheese crackers. This is a fantastic way to use tomatoes when the garden is bursting!
