Heirloom Tomato Pie

"I'm glad the first time I tried tomato pie is was this recipe...awesomely good! I'm in love! I used my cornmeal butter crust recipe #474253, substituted Planko for bread crumbs, used fresh lemon basil and used Provalone cheese. When I fliped the tomatoes I put them on clean dry paper towels for another 10 minutes; then blotted them dry. Got this from Family Circle magazine August 2013."

Ready In:




  • Heat oven to 375. Placed sliced tomatoes in a single layer on paper towels. Sprinkle one side with 1/4 tsp of the salt; let stand for 10 minutes. Gently pat salted side of tomatoes with paper towels to absorb some of the moisture. Flip tomatoes and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 tsp salt.
  • Meanwhile, fit piecrust into a 9-inch pie plate. Sprinkle bread crumbs evenly on the bottom. Place half the mozzarella over the bread crumbs, along with a third of the tomatoes and a third of the basil. Sprinkle with 2 tbsp of the Parmesan. Layer with a third of the tomatoes, a third of the basil and remaining mozzarella. Layer with remaining tomatoes, basil and parmesan. Season with pepper and if desired, brush edges of crust with beaten egg.
  • Bake at 375 for 40 to 45 minutes, until crust is browned. Cool 10 to 15 minutes before slicing.
  • Note: Pie will have moisture. For a less wet pie, seed the tomatoes.

<p>I'm just a good ol country girl that loves to create! I call it creating...not cooking. I got this love from my mother (Love you!) and Granny (Miss you somethin aweful-RIP). <br /> <br />I'm a homemaker and I've started my own buisness. &nbsp;I have two wonderful children and three of the most beautiful, loving, sweetest grand children in the world! (I lovingly refer to all of us as the Family Circus) &nbsp;My children have inherited my love of cooking; they've been helping me since they could stand in a chair in the kitchen! My grand children are learning this love as well! <br /> <br />Then theres lots of people that have adopted me...lol. Many because they love my cooking. The others...well I haven't figured out yet why, but they always seem to show up just before dinner is being served. &nbsp;Cook'em some good ol southern soul food and they just might ask if they can move in!<br /> <br />I'm always looking for new recipes and I follow the directions (the first time anyways). Then if we like it, I'll modify it and make it my own. <br /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></p>
