I Live On this In the Summer!

 

TOMATO PIE

1 baked 8 or 9 inch pie crust, enough for one crust and then a little more

My crust recipe, you can use your own or a frozen shell:

1 1/4 c. all purpose flour

1 stick cold butter

a pinch of salt

up to 1/4 c. ice water

Cut flour, butter, and salt with a pastry blender until mealy. With a mixer, add 1 tablespoon at a time of ice water until it cleans side of bowl, usually end up using only 3 tbsp. Shape into ball, wrap in plastic wrap, store in refrigerator at least 1/2 hour. Roll out on floured countertop to desired size, cut edges how you like. Bake at 375 for approx 10 minutes.

FILLING:

5 or 6 medium tomatoes, peeled and sliced about 1/4 inch thick, DRAIN IN COLANDER AFTER PEELING AND SLICING.

2 to 3 tablespoons fresh chopped sweet basil

salt, pepper, garlic pepper to taste (about 1/8 tsp each)

1 1/4 c. cheddar cheese (sometimes I use a mixture of cheddar, colby, and monterey jack)

3/4 c. mayonnaise (I only use Hellmann’s)

 

Layer 1/2 of the tomatoes in baked pie shell. Sprinkle 1/2 basil, salt, pepper, garlic powder on top.

Repeat.

Mix cheese and mayonnaise together and spread over tomato layers, right to inside edge of crust.

I wonder what a little crumbled bacon mixed in would do?

Make it taste like a BLT minus the L !!!  Oh my, oh my!  And I’m just positive this won’t taste as good with store bought tomatoes, so I’m going to be thinking of this pie for MONTHS!  I thought about it when I was making coffee this morning……I was on the “what should I take out for dinner” and this popped into my head!

This is quite close to a recipe from about 15 years ago (from one of those little cards that falls out of magazines!) for a rustic tomato/basil pie.  It was simply placing tomatoes, onions, basil and goat cheese on a pie crust laid onto a baking sheet.  Then you folded the piecrust up over the top, leaving a fairly large opening in the middle, bake it, then YUM.

So, this would also be yummy!

Quite like, yes!  I remember doing it years ago, and using one of those refrigerated pie crusts for the first time to do it – and how difficult it was to find goat cheese!
