"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."
Philippians 4:8

Tomato Pie Recipe

Tomato Pie
  My friends, Rosemarie and Vicki are artists with food.  I am the happy, fat recipient! Every month or so, one of them prepares a luncheon feast. We get together to share ideas, life events, the Lord, and our wishes and dreams. Rosemarie made this tomato pie and I was in LOVE!!!!!
I came home and made it for dinner that very evening. She used Monterey Jack cheese. I improvised with what was in my refrigerator; mild cheddar. It was still delicious! Above is a picture of my finished pie!
                    I cut 1/4 " rounds from 7 vine ripe tomatoes.
                  I salted them well and allowed them
                 to drain juices for one hour.
                                             After one hour, I pat-dried the salt off of the tomatoes.
                          I used a little garlic salt, a little salt and pepper to season the tomatoes to my liking.
I used a ready made pie crust which I had in my freezer. I threw it over a 9" pie tin.
Next time I will make my own crust because I would have liked it flakier and thicker.
   My daughter used 2 crusts on top of each other (it was nicer.)

                                                     I washed and dried seven Basil leaves.
I chopped the Basil.
Then, I layer tomatoes, basil and cheese.
Layer like you would Lasagna.
After three layers, I baked the pie in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes.
This pie was delicious. If you try it, I would appreciate your comments.
Stay tuned, I have a wonderful cobbler cake recipe I will post tomorrow.

  1. Looks yummy! Unfortunately in my home, I would be the only one eating it as no one else likes tomatoes. Stopping by from Women Living Well. Many blessings!
