Reviews for Delicious Tomato Pie
"Used for a brunch. Well received."
"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."
