Reviews for Delicious Tomato Pie
"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."
"This is so good! I will plan make on very often! I followed the recipe as written & it was delicous!"
"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."
"Simply amazing. It is easy to put together and once you follow the first recipe, you can adapt it to your taste and seasonings."
"Will definately be making this again! I only had yello onions in so used them, and I did not add bacon- heavy hand on the parmesan-- came out delicious- I could have eaten the whole pie myself. thank you"
"I liked this as a change of pace. I did not bake my crust long enough so was a bit soggy. The flavor was good."
"I made this recipe tonight for my supper & just had to come back & post a review. It is delicious. I also had never tasted a tomato pie before, but you can be sure I will be tasting this one again & again. I followed the recipe word for word except for doubling up on the bacon. Thankyou Edie DeSpain for sharing this recipe with us, & thankyou Taste of Home for EMailing it to me. Excellent supper."
"Added one banana pepper in with the mayo. Was delish!!"
"Had this tonite,this was excellent!! Very flavorful,easy to make,let tomatoes drain on paper towels, and added a little more mayo.....this will be made again for sure!"
"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."
"Not as good as I expected. I like all of the ingredients, but the finished result was disappointing. Hubby liked it all right."
"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."
"I replaced the mayo, with sour cream....worked out great!"
"Made this recipe last summer for the first time. It was very good. Like the tips from other cooks, re/removing the water a bit and adding pesto! will need to try that next!"
"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."
"Follow the recipe iambecka! Its good!"
"Delicious!I found the baking time to be "Spot On."The crust and bacon are already done, sothe only time necessary is for the roomtemp. tomatoes and the cheese to heat upand blend together."
"Excellent! I also spread some pesto on the bottom before I added the rest of the ingredients. It gave another nice flavor to the recipe........also used a mixture of mozzarella and provolone cheese."
"This was a wonderfully flavorful dish. Everyone in the house devoured it (even the 11yr old pickypuss!)"
"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."
"Very, very good. Served a green salad with this and it was a nice summer meal."
"Sound great and my family would love it with more onions, and oregano instead of basil and add ground beef! Will make this!"
"Loved this pie!! Used 2 cups cheese/1 cup mayo...easy, anddelicious!"
"Here I am again! This pie looks & sounds like top pf the line! I have e-mailed 4 of my friends who, I am sure, will love it too! Keep em' coming!!Sylvia, Naples, Fla."
"This was great but took extra baking time in my oven."
