Family recipe handed down. Every time I make this for a gathering, I am asked for the recipe by everyone!! Use only the freshest tomatoes for this, if you can get true "Hanover" tomatoes you'll love this even more! What a way to use all those summer tomatoes, yummm!!! Even better the second day....if there is any left!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spread sliced tomatoes on paper towels and let sit for about 20 minutes to remove excess liquids. You can sprinkle with salt at this point if using salt.
  2. Bake pie shell for 10 min at 375 (prick w/ fork first). Remove from oven.
  3. Layer tomatoes and onion rings in shell, sprinkling each layer with pepper, basil and garlic (and bacon if you choose touse!).
  4. Combine mayonnaise and cheese.
  5. Spread over tomatoes.
  6. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes or until pie is browned and bubbly.
  7. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
  8. **Note it is important to SPREAD the mayo mixture over entire pie, don't just "dollop" it on --
  9. **Note you may also need to tent with aluminum foil about half-way through cooking to keep crust from getting too brown.
