RECIPE: Fabulous Tomato Pie
For those who are getting tired of BLT's - this is a big hit in our family. My 14yo DS even heated up a leftover piece for breakfast yesterday, and normally he won't bother with anything that needs to be reheated :-)

NOTES : Made 9-6-09 Seeded and chopped tomatoes (reserving 6 slices for top garnish). Also microwaved the onion for a minute to soften it. Rather than layering in pie crust, I just mixed everything together and spread into shell, topping with reserved tomato slices.
