Tomato Pie

Tomato Pie


I have been come across this tomato pie a few times lately and it has always looked so good. With the farmers market being full of perfectly ripe field tomatoes, now was the perfect time to make it! One of my favorite ways of enjoying tomatoes is a simple open faced sandwich with a bit of mayo and sliced tomatoes all topped off with some melted cheddar cheese and this pie incorporates all of those ingredients and adds in some bacon to make it even better! It may not be the healthiest of pies but how can you go wrong with tomatoes, bacon, cheese, mayonnaise and a full butter pie crust? Once you have your crust this pie is as easy to make as slicing the tomatoes, mixing the rest of the ingredients and baking for a short while and it is so worth it! This tomato pie is just as good as it looks and as the ingredients suggest! I could barely wait for the pie to cool down before digging in and the slices are disappearing very quickly!

maybelle's mom said...

looks delicious. I just recently made a tomato pie, I called a BLT pie b/c I added chard. But I went with a top and bottom crust. And, then there i the Laurie Colwin one with the biscuit crust. yum.

Natalie said...

Kevin this looks great! I have never made a tomato pie, and to be honest I don't think I have ever known anyone to make one. I look forward to trying this!

This looks so tasty, and will be perfect for using up some of my dad's homegrown tomatoes that are just coming out of the garden here in Vancouver! Thanks.

Amy said...

No, you cannot go wrong with tomatoes, bacon, cheese, and mayo. So right about that! This looks tasty.

And having the word "pie" in any title immediately gets my attention.

Mary said...

I've been wanting to make this pie ALL summer - but that cup of mayo always stops me - even though I know it would be soooo great! I just can't - I know I'll cave sooner or later - maybe next summer!?

redforever said...

Looks great Kevin AND I think you have conquered making pie crust!!!

Patsyk said...

I can imagine that this must taste out-of-this-world! you can't go wrong with fresh tomatoes no matter what you do with them!

teresa said...

since moving back east, we've bought a few restaurant tomato pies, but none of them have been quite as good as this looks!

Becky said...

It looks heavenly! I'm a southern girl, but I've never made a tomato pie ... yet ...

pigpigscorner said...

WOw, this looks so appetising and delicious!

Jenn said...

Now this is a pie I can devour all to myself. You can never have enough tomatoes is what I say and a pie devoted to such a veggie is a winner in my book.

The Duo Dishes said...

Great way to work with tomatoes as we go into the cold months!

Cookin' Canuck said...

The layers are beautiful and I can only imagine that the flavors are just as good. Tomatoes and mayo - a wonderful combination!

Bacon is such an awesome idea in this Kevin! It looks great.

Juliana said...

Yummie....this tomato pie looks delicious, tasty and the pictures are great as always :-)

James said...

So dreams do come true!

I've always dreamed about baking cheese and mayo in a pie now it's really happening!

Lady P said...

The pie looks beautiful!

Shelly W said...

Looks like a great way to take advantage of the last good tomatoes of the year :)

Chris said...

Little known fact. The "band" Warrant originally wrote the song "Cherry Pie" about "Tomato Pie", but the record execs didn't think they could get enough innuendo out of Tomato Pie.

[Another little known fact: I totally made that up but I'd eat that tomato pie.]

I just stumbled onto your blog and I love it! You have fantastic recipes and gorgeous pictures. Kudos to you from Alabama!

Dolores said...

Making this for lunch today with the last of my CSA tomatoes to usher in the first real rainstorm of the season.

... tc said...

Tried this recipe today and was quite pleased with the results. I'll be making this again, but next time I'll seed the tomato's

Gavin Rogers said...

it may be an idea to take up tomato growing to get your tomatoes to prepare this delicious looking dish.

I love this kind of pies and yours look very delicious! I'm getting hungry...

bacon isn't vegetarian...

Pauline said...

Love the layers. Bottom tomato red, then cheesy white, then golden cheesy top. You turned a BLT into a pie. Genius!

Nala said...

Ooooh that pie looks absolutely delicious - but I would leave out the bacon because I'm vegetarian.

I've looked at several tomato pie recipes and each one uses a different kind of cheese. What do you prefer?

Kevin Lynch said...

Anonymous: I am kind of partial to the cheddar and tomato combo but a lot of cheeses would work. I think that mozzarella, gruyere or maybe even a goat cheese would work.
