Mary Ann's Tomato Pie
My dear friend Mary Ann made this pie for me
one summer when I was very sick. It was the one thing that tasted great!
It was summer all wrapped up in a neat package,
and it tasted like summer.
Mary Ann grew up in Savannah Georgia and this
is one of her mothers recipes.
Bake a 9" pie crust in a deep pie dish,
homemade or store bought they turn out about the same.
Let it cool.
For the filling:
3-5 peeled and sliced "homegrown" tomatoes
enough to fill the pie plate about 3/4 full
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
1/3 cup chopped green onion
For the topping:
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 cup grated Mozzarella cheese
1 cup mayonnaise
salt & course ground pepper to taste
preheat oven to 350 degrees
Layer tomatoes on bottom of baked pie shell, then add your
chopped basil and green onion.
In a small bowl, mix the cheeses and the mayo together,
then spoon out on top of top of tomatoes and herbs.
Spread out the topping to the edges of the crust try not to leave
any part of the filling showing.
Bake for apx. 30 minutes or until lightly brown .
Serve warm or at room temperatur .
