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.

That looks good, Becky, and it has less mayo than similar recipes I have seen. One TB basil -- is that dried or fresh? That would be a lot if dried, don't you think?


RE: RECIPE: Fabulous Tomato Pie--oops

Don't know what I was looking at, but you plainly state 2 TB chopped FRESH basil.....sorry.


RE: RECIPE: Fabulous Tomato Pie

Well, it may have less mayo, but I think maybe it has more cheese... It reminds me a lot of a hot artichoke dip I make, and I think it would also make a good dip if it were just baked in a shallow dish without the crust.

I used fresh basil and Best Foods light mayonnaise.


RE: RECIPE: Fabulous Tomato Pie

Sounds great, Becky. Who could argue with a 14 y/o boy?

RE: RECIPE: Fabulous Tomato Pie

Ummmm....a hot tub full of stuff like the artichoke dip! I bet I'd have a lot of company. "Pass the toasted french bread, please?"

RE: RECIPE: Fabulous Tomato Pie

This is a favorite of ours but will try yours too.....sounds really good.
Tomatoes Oregano
2 lbs tomatoes, chunked up
3/4 tsp oregano
3/4 tsp salt
pepper to taste
Combine and bake at 350 covered for 20 minutes or til soft and bubbly
Top with:
1/2c bread crumbs
2 T butter, melted
1/4c Parmesan cheese
Combine and spread over tomatoes. Bake an additional 10-15 minutes til crumbs are brown.

I use English muffin crumbs and love them.

RE: RECIPE: Fabulous Tomato Pie

Roselin - thanks for sharing your recipe. We love baked tomatoes with bread crumbs and parmesan, so I've saved your recipe to try :-)


RE: RECIPE: Fabulous Tomato Pie

Becky, they are a favorite here....let me know how you like them.

RE: RECIPE: Fabulous Tomato Pie

Both of these recipes look like 'gotta try' since were getting tired of fresh sliced. They sound like really good alternatives. Thanks for posting them, Sally
