I made this recipe just as it was posted. We just loved it. It had a very nice texture and seasoning! I think I will give it a go with some ham added in for a brunch dish. I have scads of tomatoes! Thanks for a GREAT new recipe!

This is such a treat for tomato & cheese lovers + exactly what you described ... simple, tasty & perfect use for a bag of tomatoes I got from the garden of a friend. Unable to get prepeared pie shells here, I used the crust portion of Rustic Salmon Pie by Derf (a favorite). I made the recipe exactly as written, but did have to bake it longer to get it fully puffed & set. I served it as a side-dish to my Marinated Cod Fillets W/Potato Scales, but think it would also work as a main-dish w/the addition of bacon & then served w/a green salad & crusty bread. That will be my next effort. We loved this, Kellie! Thx for sharing the recipe w/us. :-) Edited to add on 8/24: Got a 2nd bag of tomatoes from friends & remade this recipe using bacon as a further add. So yummy & DH ate leftovers for breakfast the next day. :-)
