Tomato Pie

A wonderful summer dish! (or anytime you can get fresh tomatoes). We like to make it in a cast iron skillet, but any heavy baking dish will do.

2 large tomatoes

Slice tomatoes and lay on paper towel. Sprinkle with salt (to help remove moisture) and let sit for 10-15 minutes. Dab with more paper towel on top to remove all moisture. 

Pie shell
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup cheddar, shredded
1/2 cup mozzarella, shredded
1/2 cup Monterey Jack, shredded
Salt and pepper

1/2 cup green onions

In pie shell, make 1 layer of tomatoes along bottom. Mix together mayo, cheese, salt and pepper until combined. Spread half of cheese mixture on top of tomatoes. Sprinkle all green onions and continue with one more layer of tomatoes and cheese. Cook at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Remove and let cool a bit before slicing.

Stephanie made this dish during a taping of Tim Farmer’s Country Kitchen television show in July 2022. Watch the full episode, which also includes Pork & Noodles and sugar biscuits, two simple Appalacian favorites!
