Shaker Tomato Pie, part 2


Shaker Tomato Pie


1 #10 can of diced tomatoes

1 cup real mayonnaise (do not use Miracle Whip)

1 TBSP lemon juice

2 cups shredded cheese (cheddar, cojack, mozzarella, whatever)

Diced onion (optional)

1 clove fresh garlic, minced or pressed

Italian seasoning - a good sprinkle

Dry or fresh basil - a very good sprinkle

Double pie crust



Drain (and squeeze) juice from canned tomatoes. (As a side note, fresh tomatoes may be used in season...chop them, and let them drain for a few hours on paper toweling). While the tomatoes are draining, mix the mayo and lemon juice. Stir until smooth and well-blended. Add dry herbs and garlic to the mixture.


Put pie crust into pan; top with drained tomatoes. Add diced onion and shredded cheeses. Pour mayo mixture over the top, gently spreading to the edges. Top with pie crust, crimp. I always add an egg wash to the pie crust to promote a "golden" crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes, or until pie crust is well-browned.

That pie looks to pretty to eat! Thank you so much for stopping by and for leaving the link for your tutorial for the dress form. I am still hoping to rope my daughter into letting me use her as a model, we'll see.

Teresa,
This looks so AMAZING. I love anything and everything with tomatoes. I will definitely be trying this recipe.

In return, if you like asparagus, you might want to try this on for size:
