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!
- 1 pie crust
- 4 large tomatoes (sliced thickly)
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- pepper to taste
- 1/4 cup green onions (sliced)
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 cup cheddar cheese (grated)
- 1/4 cup bacon (sliced into 1 inch pieces and cooked)
- Place the tomato slices on the bottom of the pie shell in one or two layers and sprinkle with the sugar, pepper and green onions.
- Mix the mayonnaise, cheese and bacon and spread over the tomatoes.
- Bake in a preheated 400F/200C oven until golden brown and bubbling, about 20-30 minutes.

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.
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!

Fabulous! That pie looks so flavorful!

I love tomatoes and can always welcome more recipe to use them in!
This sounds great:D I want to add this in my to do list.
isn't that the best? I have to try it with the onions. I can't tell you how many times I've made this each and every summer. it tastes so good cold too.
i love this, it looks so delicious, perfect for a light meal, good job kevin!

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.
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.
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!?
Looks great Kevin AND I think you have conquered making pie crust!!!
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!
since moving back east, we've bought a few restaurant tomato pies, but none of them have been quite as good as this looks!
It looks heavenly! I'm a southern girl, but I've never made a tomato pie … yet …
WOw, this looks so appetising and delicious!
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.

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

The layers are beautiful and I can only imagine that the flavors are just as good. Tomatoes and mayo – a wonderful combination!
The Cooking Photographer says
Bacon is such an awesome idea in this Kevin! It looks great.
Yummie….this tomato pie looks delicious, tasty and the pictures are great as always 🙂
So dreams do come true!
I've always dreamed about baking cheese and mayo in a pie now it's really happening!
Lady P says
ohhh – i just made one of these, but without the bacon
must use the bacon next time yum!
Sounds really delicious Kevin. I love this type of pie.
the southern hostess says
This looks incredible.
Kinda like a BLT pie? Yummm
Kevin, your posts are always fabulous!!! I will definitely try that tomato tart, I love savoury pies…
two variations that you could maybe try:
The pie looks beautiful!
Shelly W says
Looks like a great way to take advantage of the last good tomatoes of the year 🙂
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!
Making this for lunch today with the last of my CSA tomatoes to usher in the first real rainstorm of the season.

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