Fresh Tomato Pie
By Ellie Grant
From Plum Deadly
This is about the end for tomato growing season here in North Carolina. It’s been a pretty good summer for tomatoes. I always have a bunch left though, and I’m not much of a canner. So I load them into the freezer and I make a few tomato pies!
Tomato pies are really good. My mom made them a little differently than most recipes that you see. She didn’t like the Italian element, so she used garlic and onion but not any other spices. She also didn’t like mayonnaise, and added a bit more cheese.
Here it is:
You need three or four tomatoes – fresh is best - chopped. One clove of garlic, minced, and one small white onion, minced. Add to this one cup of grated cheddar cheese and one cup of bread crumbs.
Combine all ingredients and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Put this mixture into a nine-inch pie shell. Bake at 350 degrees or until the cheese has melted.
Plum Deadly is out September 3rd!
The first book in the Pie in the Sky Mysteries will be out this week. Can't wait to share it with everyone!
