It sounds deceptively simple, but this is a fantastic recipe! It's so tasty, I could easily eat an entire pie by myself. I usually make two at a time because it gets gobbled up so fast.
Sandwiching lightly salted tomatoes between paper towels for about ten minutes will help the pie not be too runny.
I was at my cousins when she was making this pie for dinner (I helped by cutting up the tomatoes) and as I was watching her put it together kept thinking it needed some bacon which she did try. It was really great though I thought it was a bit wet (which is why I only gave it 4 stars) so when I made the recipe, I roasted my tomatoes a bit first and it made all the difference. I also discovered that my pie plates are 12 inch deep dish pie and this recipe would not let me adjust it so I made my own roasted-tomato-pie-434080, which would not have happened without jean1 getting me started.
I made this last year, following the recipe exactly. My BF loved it so much as soon as I planted tomatoes this year he started asking for it. I made it again last night and used 7 different types of cheese I had on hand. Smoked Gouda was by far the best flavor. I also added 2 slices of chopped bacon at my cousin't suggestion. Perfection! I will come back to this recipe again and again!
I used 1 cup of mayo and crumbled 12 slices of bacon into it. Also, I use 1 T. of fresh chopped basil and 1 T. of chives. I'll try your lightened version next time. Thanks for posting!
This is quick and easy to make and I thought it would be a good way to use up some tomatoes. It jus didn't set up for me and was very runny. Rasted good but needs some tweaking.
It just did not appeal to us. It sounded great, but tasted funny.
I made this as part of a vegetarian dinner, with slow cooked vegetable casserole and Byron potatoes. It turned out to be an absolutely delicious and savoury recipe. And very easy, too. Thank you Jean1!
I rate this pie 5 stars. My granddaughter and grandson love it. And they are very picky eaters.
