Ingredients

  • 1 9-inch pie shell
  • 6 large tomatoes fresh, sliced thin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon basil Fresh or 2 tsp dried basil 2 teaspoon MS. DASH Tomato Basil Garlic
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1-1/2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 8 slices bacon cooked hard and crumbled

Instructions

  • Bake pie shell for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Wash and slice the tomatoes. I do not take the skins off, but if you normally do, remove them.
  • Slice the tomatoes and layer them on a baking sheet that has been lined with paper towels.
  • Season the sliced tomatoes with the salt and pepper.
  • Allow the tomatoes to drain on the paper towels for 30 minutes to an hour. Pat the tomatoes to remove moisture.  Get as much moisture out of the tomatoes as possible.
  • Layer the tomatoes in the bottom of the pre-cooked pie crust.
  • Add half of the crumbled bacon on top of the layered tomatoes.
  • Put the second layer of sliced tomatoes on top of the bacon.
  • Top the second layer of sliced tomatoes with the rest of the bacon.
  • Mix the Mayo, cheese, and herbs.
  • Add the mixture to the top of the tomato pie. The mixture will be thick.
  • Spread the mixture to cover the entire pie. You may want to use your hands.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
  • Allow this pie to completely cool. It will be too watery to cut if you do not.
  • Share this recipe with everyone you know who enjoys tomatoes.

Notes

The thinner you can slice your tomatoes the better.  If you slice you tomatoes thin, you do not have to peel them.
Pat the cheese mixture out in your hand in small amounts and then place it on top of the pie.
