Savory Tomato Pie
1 deep dish pie crust, baked
3 tomatoes peeled, sliced and drained (salt and pepper to taste)
½ cup of chopped green onion
¼ cup of fresh basil chopped
2 ½ cups of grated Colby and Monterey jack cheese
½ pound of bacon fried, drained and crumbled
1 ½ cups of mayonnaise (Hellman’s)
Salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste
Let’s get it on-
While your oven is preheating to 350 degrees, peel tomatoes (optional), cut tomatoes in half and then slice. Drain tomatoes on paper towels. When your oven is hot lightly brown you pie crust, this will take about 10 minutes. Meanwhile mix the next six ingredients together, taste and season more if needed. I could just eat the cheese mixture on a piece of lite bread, it is so scrumptious. Layer tomatoes and mayo mixture in baked pie crust and bake for about 30 minutes. Let pie cool before slicing.
