Pie for Dinner

This post originally published on a previously-owned blog and was imported here to simplify my life. My family eats much healthier than this nowadays, but I include this post for memories and history. I hope you enjoy the content!

What do you do when you are a first-time gardener and it’s too much of a success?

Make pie!

There are some steps to it, but it’s really quite simple and surprisingly delicious – as TOH already dubbed it…

Start out by baking your pastry shell.  Let it cool.  Put an even first layer of tomatoes down.  I used cherry tomatoes because I have an abundance of them in my garden.  It calls for plum tomatoes, but personally I love the bite-sizes….

Evenly sprinkle the green onions next.

Next, layer the rest of the tomatoes on top.


Sprinkle with the basil, salt and pepper.  Spread the mayo/cheese mixture next.

Lastly, sprinkle the bacon and Parmesan.

Even though it says it serves 8, if you’re serving it as an entree, it’s closer to 4 or 5…  However, it’d be a great side to something and THEN, yes, it would serve closer to 8 people!

Happy Summer Cooking!
