I use a store bought pie shell. I sprinkle the pie shell with 1/2 lb crisp crumbled bacon. Cover the bacon with 3 sliced tomatoes overlaping them Now sprinkle with 1 tea chopped torn basil and 4 tab. chopped chives salt and pepper Mix 1 cup mayo and 1/2 shredded cheddar cheese frost the top of the pie and bake at 400 for 25 min.
enjoy

That sounds really good! C and P. Thanks, Kades!

Will it work with low fat Hellman's mayo, and does it freeze? My mom would love this, but will not be here during tomato season.

I bet this is really good for some, but for me, you could have put it on the Fear Factor thread. Funny how people have such different tastes. I am going to give this idea to a friend whom I know will just love this. Thanks. :)

Yes the low fat will work just fine. Freezing I'm not sure as we never have any left to freeze but I'd give it a try and see.,

It sure is, we all have our likes and dislikes. What do you love in a savory pie? I hope your friend likes this recipe.

kades, This sounds great. I'm going to make it this summer. I was wondering about all the moisture in the tomato. How do you keep it from making the crust soggy?

Andy I lay the tomatoes on several layers of paper towels. Sometimes it takes several different lsyers and sometimes it doesn't work well When this happens I just live wit it and eat fast It helps to partially cook the crust which i do.

Good yummy pie! I used to make something similar in large pans for the restaurant. I added a few eggs to help bind it a bit, which helps to incorporate that extra tomato liquid, and then, I put the bacon on top so it would crisp up while baking....
You could also sprinkle a thin layer of breadcrumbs on the bottom to help soak up the moisture, if it is a problem. You barely notice it when you are eating it.
