#SundaySupper Southern Tomato Pie

July 28, 2013

When I think of summer and in-season fruits and veggies, I think of tomato plants laden with bright red orbs. So, it wasn’t hard to decide what ingredient I wanted to feature when this week’s #SundaySupper topic was farmer’s market finds. I wanted to get the most gorgeous tomatoes I could, and luckily, I was in the beautiful Saint Simons Island, GA, so I stopped at their little market to pick some up. I also grabbed some Vidalia onions (which are from Vidalia, GA, in case you didn’t know).

I decided to try my hand at Tomato Pie. A friend from Junior League had mentioned this recipe to me and I had never heard of it before. Tomato Pie? No eggs? Just mayo, cheese and tomatoes? Hmmmm….I had to give this a whirl.

I made it my own by adding caramelized Vidalia onions, and OMG. This is to die for. You can serve it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. (It’s good cold, too.)

Southern Tomato Pie

Ingredients

  • Store bought pie crust

  • 2 Vidalia onions, caramelized

  • 4 medium tomatoes, cored and cut into thick slices

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup Duke’s mayonnaise (is there any other kind?)

  • 3 green onions, chopped

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, divided

  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided

Preparation

    1. Place tomatoes in a single layer on paper towels; sprinkle with salt. Let stand 30 minutes. Pat dry with paper towels. Stir together next 4 ingredients and 3/4 cup of cheese.

    2. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup cheese over bottom of crust. Arrange caramelized onions over cheese on crust, then tomato slices; spread mayonnaise mixture over tomatoes.

    3. Bake at 350º for 35 minutes. Let cool 15 minutes before serving.

  22. Great idea for adding the caramelized onion. It goes so well with the tomatoes and cheese. Nice pie and way to use those garden fresh tomatoes.

  23. theninjabaker Says:

    Your tomato pie does look and sound amazing. Love meals that are good hot or cold…I can definitely see this pie disappearing very quickly.

    P.s. Japanese mayonaise is pretty darn good, too ;)
