Tomato Pie


-1 store bought pie crust (or you can make your own!)

-4-5 ripe beefsteak,heirloom tomatoes (yellow or red) sliced (amount vary depending on how large your pie is)

-1/2 white onion sliced thinly (can also use red or green onion)

-3/4 cup mayonnaise (Duke's preferred... IYKYK)

-1 teaspoon hot sauce

-2 cups grated cheese (I have used all kinds but I like cheddar, mozzarella or parmesan!)

-1/4 cup fresh basil (jullienned)

-salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 350

Slice tomatoes and lay flat on a paper towel to dry out. This is important and ensures your pie does not turn out soggy!

Mold pie shell into pie dish. Bake 5-7 minutes. Remove and let cool.

Mix together the mayonnaise, 2 cups cheese, hot sauce and salt and pepper to taste.

Start layering in the pie shell: Onions, tomatoes, basil and 1/2 cheese mixture. Repeat layers one more time. You should end with the remaining cheese sauce on top. You can sprinkle a little extra cheese on top. You can also add one tomato and piece of basil on top to make it look pretty. 

Bake at 350 degrees about 30/55 minutes or until cheese bubbles and crust is a nice golden brown.
