ICBC: Tomatoes!

I wasn't sure what to do for the ingredient this week, tomatoes. I love tomatoes, but especially in the summer, I usually just eat them marinated and raw. So good. But I wanted to try something different, and I remembered that in the Lady and Sons Savannah Country Cookbook, there is a recipe for tomato pie.

It's actually really easy. Prebake a pie crust, layer 4 peeled and sliced tomatoes, about 10 chopped basil leaves, and some chopped green onion. Top with a mixture of shredded cheddar and mozzarella mixed with mayonnaise. I think I could have used slightly more cheese or slightly less mayo, I'm not sure which. But, the pie was delicious.

I also learned a ridiculously easy way to peel tomatoes. It was craziness.


  1. Unbelievable! How interesting. I wonder if you could use other types of cheeses?

  2. I'm sure you could! I would like to use fresh mozzarella maybe. However, the downside is that this was not good reheated later. The crust had gotten really soggy. I think that some adjustment to the topping would help with that as well. Maybe draining the tomatoes some first.
