Southern Tomato Pie

Diva Entertains Whole Tomato Pie

So I’ve been staring at southern tomato pie recipes for the last few years and haven’t taken the plunge because, well, they aren’t exactly healthy.  And that is an understatement.  Yes – you do use fresh tomatoes but that’s where the good stuff ends.  Because it also calls for lots of cheese, a cup of mayonnaise and usually a bottom and top crust.  On the recommendation of my dear friend, Karen, I decided to give this one a try.  After all – this recipe doesn’t call for a top crust.  Which I consider one step closer to ‘diet food’:)

Seriously, the reason to make this is simply because it is absolutely fantastic.  Heck, better than that!  Something about the combination of tomatoes, green onions and basil really works, as does the cheese/mayo topping.  The latter forms an absolutely beautiful crust.

The recipe calls for peeled tomatoes which is kinda a pain.  It involves slicing an “X” at the top of each tomato and quickly blanching it in boiling water.  Then the skin comes off rather easily by peeling away from the “X”.  What this achieves is not having the skins come apart as you eat the pie.
