    Sharon123's Note:

    This recipe is from Rebecca Laney-Meers, Jackson Mississippi and she was one of the winners in the Mississippi magazine contest. Her memories of this pie take her back to the 1960s when as a child in her grandmother Kate’s kitchen in west Jackson she renamed the recipe Tommy Toe Pie. It was called Tomato Pie. Rebecca’s time with her grandmother was quality time, and over the years she has tried many tomato pies, but grandmother Kate’s has remained the best. And when the tomatoes start coming in from the garden, this is her go-to recipe for her family. Thanks Rebecca! Feel free to add in fresh herbs, like the basil, oregano, etc. Enjoy!

      This pie was discussed in a Zaar thread and it was certainly one of the stranger concepts for a pie that I ever encountered, so naturally, I had to try it! Lucky for me, when I went to Whole Foods to find some cheese worthy of this recipe, an employee who grew up in Florida, exclaimed, "Oh my God! I grew up with Tomato Pies and THIS is the cheese we all use down there!" So, I bought a Parrano Uniekaas Dutch Cheese and a Black Diamond Cheddar which was aged 5 years, plus the Parmesan. By the photos that I included, you can tell that I chose to use a wide variety of Heirloom tomatoes, just for fun. The recipe went together like a snap, (I put Panko crumbs on top with the Parmesan), and the smell was amazing, as it baked. It's a tad runny, but when we sat down to try this new recipe, we were bowled over by the taste!!! Even my very, very picky daugher who only likes pizza, asked for a second slice. :) I would plan on serving this at least a couple of times per year, just for the heck of it but I could easily see this being stunning at a brunch, too! So glad that I stumbled upon the "Tommy Toe Pie" thread and had the time and courage to make this most unusual addition to our dinner menu.

      sharon 123, This recipe was attractive to me ,because of the name originally.When I read it,it seemed interesting,when tasted it was SUPER.Thanks The only comment I have is that perhaps a weight or cup quantity on the tomatoes would be helpful.I guessed as to how many tomatoes by the size of my pie plate,and this worked out fairly well..Is a keeper for me taste was outstanding...Don Steele
