Harvest Tomato Pie

 

Harvest Tomato Pie

My tomato growing hasn’t been much of a success this year. The cherry and pear tomatoes did great but there is nothing better than a large homegrown tomato in my opinion.

Farmer's Market Tomatoes

Luckily for me the farmers market was filled with lots of great looking tomatoes for purchase. On this trip I bought a mix of red and yellow tomatoes to make a tomato pie. I love making this for my family with a big salad for dinner or to bring to a party as a side dish or appetizer. This dish is fun to be creative with when it comes to choosing the tomatoes and the design. Think about how stunning a group of pink, purple, red and yellow heirlooms would look. Wait until you taste it. Yum.

Here’s the recipe:

Harvest Tomato Pie
This is a great dish to bring to a party. It serves a lot of people and has a nice presentation. Use different colored heirlooms or simple fresh red tomatoes.

  • 1 head garlic - roasted
  • 8-10 medium size tomatoes
  • 1 bag shredded Italian 6 cheese blend
