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.
