Calling All Tomato Lovers
Calling all of you tomato lovers out there! Have you ever eaten a delicious hot tomato pie? Oh my goodness, if you haven't you're really missing out on something good. I love them, but my two favorite guys could eat them all the time I do believe.
The pie in the picture was baked back in the spring. I intended to blog and give ya'll the recipe and just never did. Of course home grown tomatoes or going and picking them yourself are the best flavored ones for all your recipes and eating delights.
Below is the recipe. We are looking forward to the fall tomato crops to come about a month from now. I sure hope you'll give it a try and I hope your family enjoys it as much as we do.
9" deep dish pie shell
1 1/2 c shredded mozz cheese
3 - 4 md. tomatoes (sliced thick & layed on paper towel to help soak up some juice)
2 tsp dried basil
4 cloves fresh garlic (chopped)
1/2 c mayo
1/4 c shredded parm. cheese
Sprinkle 1/2 c mozz cheese on bottom of pie shell, arrange sliced tomatoes, cover with basil and garlic.
In a seperate bowl, mix together mayo and 1 c mozz cheese. Add parm cheese, then spread over tomatoes.
375 DEGREES 35 - 45 MINUTES Until lightly brown
Let cool for a few minutes before trying to slice it. Oh, it's so yummy! Enjoy!
You'll notice that we sprinkle a little more basil on top before baking, just because we love basil and it does look pretty.
