Apple Pie, Cherry Pie, Coconut Pie, Pecan Pie....but TOMATO PIE?
I had never heard of Tomato Pie until a few years ago when I had it at a local restaurant. I actually forgot about it until awhile back I came across the recipe in a copy of THE BEST OF GEORGIA FARMS COOKBOOK. Well, since
state and I know there are a lot of wonderful farmers and cooks here, I knew I
had to try it. So glad I did! It's not only very yummy but also "easy
as pie" to make (no pun intended). My
husband now loves it and even my daughter-in-law (who doesn't really cook)
asked me for the recipe today. Thought I
would share the recipe. Of course,
Georgia-grown tomatoes are the BEST, I'm sure, but hopefully your state has
some delicious ones around too. Georgia

1 9-inch deep dish frozen pie shell
3 medium, ripe tomatoes, sliced
6 strips of bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 cup mayonnaise
*I have actually made it for just my husband and me by using a regular pie shell, fewer tomatoes, and cut back a little on the cheese and mayo. I like lots of bacon though!
Bake pie shell following pkg. directions.Preheat oven to 350. Place tomatoes in bottom of cooked pie shell; top with
crumbled bacon. Combine cheese & mayo; spoon evenly over tomatoes. Bake 35-40 minutes.
A good old Southern recipe....enjoy!
