Have you heard of tomato pie? With the summer tomatoes arriving before long, think about making a tomato pie. It is a pie crust with scallions, tomatoes, basil and cheese goodness. Serve it up with some nice greens and it is a perfect summer supper. This is best at room temperature. So it can be made ahead and just warmed up a little before serving. You can spice it up by using different cheeses, like Mexican Blend or Pepper Jack for one of the cheeses.
2 - 3 fresh Tomatoes, sliced or cubed and drained.
8 fresh Basil leaves, finely chopped.
1/2 cup Scallions, chopped.
1 Pre-Baked Pie Crust, 9 inch.
1 cup of grated Cheddar Cheese.
1 cup of grated Mozzarella Cheese.
1/2 cup of Mayonnaise.
Salt and Pepper to taste. Slice and chop the Basil, set aside. Slice and chop the Onion, set aside. Slice and cube the Tomatoes, place in colander to drain. Sprinkle the Tomatoes with Black Pepper. Sprinkle on the Salt, stir and let continue to drain. In a separate mixing bowl, add the Cheddar Cheese. Add the grated Mozzarella Cheese. Add the Mayonnaise, stir until combined, set aside. To assemble the Pie, place chopped onions in bottom of crust. Sprinkle with the chopped Basil. Add the drained Tomatoes, spread around evenly in crust. Top with the Cheese mixture, spread almost to edges of pie crust. Bake at 350º for about 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack. Serve warm and Enjoy! Makes 6 slices.
