Fried Green Tomato Pie

Jessica Dayon


The other day I was working in my garden and I starting picking green tomatoes so that I could fry them. When I was finished, I realized I had a ton of green cherry tomatoes in addition to some big green tomatoes so I decided I was going to have to make fried green tomatoes casserole-style instead of the traditional fried slices. I came up with this. It is amazing!

My husband who hates tomatoes loved it and said he could eat the whole thing for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! I have to admit, I could too!

It is great for a main dish or side dish.

How to Make Fried Green Tomato Pie


  1. Slice all of the tomatoes. Arrange 1/3 of the tomatoes in the bottom of a pie pan or 8x8 baking dish. Sprinkle with 1/3 of salt, 1/3 of sugar, and a little pepper. Top with 1/3 cup of seasoned breadcrumbs and 1/2 cup cheese.
  2. Add second layer of tomatoes and sprinkle with 1/3 of salt, 1/3 of sugar, and a little pepper. Top with panko breadcrumbs and 1/2 cup cheese.
  3. Repeat the layers one more time- tomatoes, 1/3 of salt, 1/3 of sugar, and a little pepper, seasoned breadcrumbs and omit the cheese on the last layer at this point.
  4. Dot the butter on the top of the last breadcrumb layer. Bake at 400F for 60 minutes. Add the remaining cheese and bake for about 5-10 more minutes, until the cheese is melted and starting to brown.
