  1. Such a different idea, I'd never have thought of it. That being said, this sounds like something my husband would looooove! Definitely going to have to try this one!

  2. Love reading everyone's comments! Thank you so very much!!

  3. YES to tomato pie!! I love it. I made it this past summer with tomatoes from the garden and it was so good. I am so glad you know what tomato pie is! So many people don't!

  5. I love tomato pies of all kinds. (And who doesn't love bacon!) I think that basil just might qualify for the "L" in BLT. Lovely pie. BTW, I've never had much luck with growing carrots. The first year, they were gnarly, the second year, I didn't thin them enough. Third year must be the charming year! We'll see

  6. Yum. I just made a bacon and leek pie and this reminded me of it. I love these savory, veggie pies.

  7. hi, i dont eat mayonnaise do you think i could use greek yogurt or sour cream instead? this looks so good!

  8. Thank you so much for posting this recipe! Tomatos are one of my favorite things to eat and I like adding them as a side to lots of things. I cannot wait to try this…I can only imagine how yummy it is with all that cheese! And by the way, your little boy is such a cutie patootie!!

  9. I have my fav tomato pie recipe but I think I will add bacon and see how that is. Sounds good! I also chop my tomatoes instead of slicing and let them drain a bit. Makes for an easier to slice, less soggy pie.

  10. it's in the oven right now!!! As I was making it I thought uh huh NEXT time I will!! do the deep dish frozen crust like you did so I can pile more in!! lol I am gonna top it off with more mozzarella right before it's done…I think,I will have to wait and see how cheesy it is when finished….Could NOT wait to make this…thx for ALL of your awesome recipes!!! xox

  11. Brandie, this pie is amazing! I made it tonight, and my family loved it! They literally devoured this pie. If you publish a cookbook one day, add this tomato and bacon pie to the book. Thank you so much for sharing. My family says thank you, as well.

    • Jennie, I'm not sure how I missed your comment when you first posted it. I'm sorry! Thank you for taking the time to come back and let me know how it turned out!

  12. a southern staple around here ,i use white onion chopped up instead of green , another thing if you have really juicy tomatoes the pie will be runny, i always slice and spread out on paper towels to absorb some of the juices, works great with the taco blend cheese also

  13. I have made this pie for years and it is a family favorite! The instructions are not complete here, though. You need to dry/dab the tomato slices between paper towels or in a sieve before layering in the baked shell. You can also do 2 layers of tomatoes, bacon, regular diced onions etc. before adding the cheese/mayo layer on the top. Cheddar cheese give the topping a golden look when cooked. I've also added fresh dill to the mixture when I have it.

  14. Thank you so much for this recipe. I've tried quite a few of yours in the past. I tweaked it a little. I used sour cream instead of mayo and didn't add any onions. I don't like either. I also placed the ingredients in in layers because I wanted every bite to have a bit of everything. I really enjoyed it, and I'm eager to see how well it tastes the next day.

  15. Good morning! I have an Inn and thought since I grow tomatoes this would be a nice addition to breakfast. My experience was that the crust was very soggy, the pie slices did not hold together, and there was a ton of grease from the mayo. The flavors were amazing with fresh garden tomatoes and homegrown basil however so I am going to try this again. This time I will do as others suggest and drain my tomatoes between paper towels. The mayo had an overwhelming taste and grease so I think I will significantly reduce it and try adding sour cream as another suggested.I also think I will mix it in to the ingredients with the tomatoes drained and chopped then top with just cheese. I appreciate your blog, have tried a number of recipes with great success and wonderful flavors. Thank you for helping us!

  16. I just made this tonight, and wowzers! My husband and I were both crazy about it! I blotted the tomatoes but maybe not enough as our slices were anything but…lol…but as my husband says, “Who cares? Taste is more important than looks!” Definitely in my meal rotation every summer from now on. I used a Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust in a Fiesta deep dish pie baker, and it was a perfect depth. The crust didn’t have to be covered either. Brandie, you are my favorite blogger BY FAR, and I can honestly say that I have more of your recipes in my collection than any other blogger. <3
