Make the most of those fresh tomatoes with a savory Traditional Southern Tomato Pie. It’s full of flavor from two kinds of cheese, fresh sun-ripened tomatoes and a buttery pie crust.
From the first bite to the last slice, tomato pie is sublime: Sharp tomatoes and savory bacon are seasoned with thyme and bathed with mayo and sharp cheese to make a humble pie that’s the perfect entrée for your end-of-summer suppers and lazy weekend brunches.
Layers for fresh tomatoes are topped with cheese and baked to perfection. Serve this Southern Tomato Pie with a salad for light lunch or as a side with your favorite grilled protein for dinner!
