Tomato Pie Recipe | Savory Tomato Recipes
The tomato pie recipe is shown below. This is my favorite tomato recipe during the summer months. It’s so savory and juicy! It’s a great recipe to try with your fresh tomatoes out of your garden or local produce vendor. So flavorful and mouth watering. I can’t wait until July and August to pick my own fresh tomatoes to use. This tomato pie recipe is quick and super easy to assemble. Perfect for a side dish, dinner party or lunch!
First start with as fresh as possible tomatoes. About four will be fine. You want to slice them and let them drain in a colander or paper towels. Then take a homemade pie crust or frozen pie crust and layer the tomatoes on the bottom. See my tip below on how to avoid the soggy crust by pre-baking it. Add your basil on top of the tomatoes and then chopped green onion and salt and pepper to taste. Then you are ready to add the cheese and mayonnaise mixture on the top. Just spread this evenly across the top and bake at 350 degrees for 30 mins or until golden brown. Enjoy your tasty tomato pie! See ingredients and steps below.
