"This was a huge hit at our house. I added a layer of cooked chicken between the tomato layers to make it heartier, and also used a cornmeal crust. Excellent!"

"This pie is a summertime favorite! I use regular beefsteak tomatoes from our garden and they work just fine. It fills your mouth with flavor with every bite and is so good that we eat it once a week during tomato season."

"It was tasty but I may not make it again, for a meal anyway, perhaps for an appetizer or something-- I did bake pie shell for about 15 mins prior and blotted extras moisture from tomatoes, which kept it from being soggy."

"My none veggie loving men loved this pie. I personally thought it was tasty but soggy on the bottom. Will definitely let the tomatoes drain on a paper towel before proceeding. Also, my eldest requested horserelish be added next time."

"I have never made or tasted a "tomato pie" until I made this today. It's the most delicious thing I've ever eaten. I partially prebaked my crust, drained the tomato slices on paper towels but used an Italian cheese blend instead of cheddar. 5 plum tomatoes was the right amount for 2 layers. This will become a regular in my kitchen. P.S.In 30min.@325, mine was done. I love reading others comments & sometimes wonder if we read the same recipe."

"Tomatoes, cheese, green onions and bacon! How bad could it be? Sorry, gang, we didn't love this one. I followed the recipe to a tee, but it just wasn't great for us- a surprise since all the TOH recipes are great. If I were to make it again, I would likely leave out the mayo. It's got enough liquid on it's own."

"Been making this for years. It's wonderful! The only thing I do differently is - I lay the slices of tomato on several layers of paper towel for about a 1/2 hour - reduces the water content."

"Delicious!

I found the baking time to be "Spot On."
The crust and bacon are already done, so
the only time necessary is for the room
temp. tomatoes and the cheese to heat up
and blend together."

"I don't know what I did wrong. I had this dish at a restaurant and it was delicious. I have made it twice. First time I just guessed and it was terrible. Second time I used this recipe. It was better but not good like the restaurant. I did cook for about 1 hour and 15 minutes. My tomatoes may have been too big because it was about 2 inches above the pie shell. I used 5 large. I pulled a couple of pieces out but by then it didn't work. Are the tomatoes supposed to lie flat on the shell or lay on top of each other? I will try this again because I know it has to be good. I guess user error! I ate it anyway."

"I doubled the amount of cheese, but probably didn't need to. This had lots of flavor, and even my skeptical kids liked it. I baked the crust pretty completely (13 min.), which I think helped it hold together, and kept it loosely covered with foil for the last half of baking time, to prevent the crust from being overcooked. Thanks for this--I'm so glad I tried it!"

"We enjoyed this pie. I made my own crust but baked it about 75 percent before I added the filling. I made this before and found a fully baked crust get too brown when I baked it again with the filling. I also added a bit of chopped fresh oregano with the basil. I have used both cheddar and mozzarella cheeses and they are both good."
