Tomato Pie, Just Do It


I have a craving right now and its all Elle's fault.

Curse that gorgeous woman and her gorgeous family!


My craving is for Tomato Pie. I'm not going to post the recipe because reading her recipes are a joy. Oh and she makes her own crust... which looks easy... but I'm lazy... and I have pre-made crusts in my freezer.


I followed Elle's recipe almost exactly but I had roasted garlic in the fridge so I mashed it up into the mayo, cheese mixture. Thats right. I said mayo and cheese. I still consider this pie healthy as its called Tomato Pie and not something like Chocolate Silk Pie.

Tomatoes are a vegetable (actually a fruit but we'll ignore that in this case) and so this is considered a health food. Right? Right.


Why am I showing you so many of these very similar pictures?

Because I don't have a single picture of the pie once it was cut into! It disappeared too quickly.

I meant to get a picture of a perfect slice on a pretty plate. Then I ate the slice.


I tried to straighten out the edge of the cut pie. I straightened and straightened and straightened until there wasn't much left.

I ate the leftovers for breakfast.. cold... straight out of the refrigerator... while standing in the middle of my kitchen.


Go make that pie and report back


  1. I haven't made it yet but had the recipe already in "the queue" for next week. But only for me because HHBL would not care for a pie that has tomatoes prominently featured. More for me!

  2. Now I'm really hungry! It looks delicious :)

  3. OOOOOOOOO HEAVENS........THAT LOOKS FANTASTIC !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Can't say that I've ever eaten Tomato Pie, but it certainly looks heavenly! Off to visit Elle's blog! Thanks

  5. Thank you for reminding me about this pie! It's one of the recipes I have saved for later.
    p.s. Mayo, cheese and garlic is the best thing ever!

  6. That looks fab. But I will *not* put mayo in my pizza pie, I will not do it. I'll double the roasted garlic instead.....


  7. oh my goodness that looks sooo good!

  8. That looks tasty. I'm a freezer crust woman, too.

  9. Well, it looks delicious! (Fond as I am of sweet pie!) I'll have to try this out!

  10. Looks heavenly and since I have about a million tomatoes clinging to my vines outside...sounds like a plan for later in the day:)

  11. I'm just slightly over tomatoes, but this is tempting me beyond what I can bear... I blame the mayo-cheese mixture...

    Also, I awarded you the Honest Scrap award today!

  12. Need.

    Every since I saw it on Elle's page I've been dying to try it...

    But The Child hates tomatoes.

    More for me!

  13. Yummy! I love tomatoes and this would make for a perfect comfort food in the chill of the upcoming fall nights.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  14. Oh yum. I love tomato pie. Haven't had it in forever. But it's a good reminder to put the recipe up on the fridge. Thx.

  15. Hahaha! Lovin' you, you sweet girl!!

    Your pie looks so beautiful with the alternating red and green tomatoes. And garlic in the mayo-cheese? FANTASTIC THOUGHT!! That addition is genius.

    This line was great: "for breakfast.. cold... straight out of the refrigerator... while standing". Hahaha, righteous.

    Do I see a steak in the last photo? YUM!!

    I'm so glad you tried it and even more glad that you liked it. Thanks for mentioning me--you're so fabulous and so much fun!


  16. That looks so stinkin good! I'm hungry now - I don't have time to wait for pie, but I am definitely going to give that one a try!

  17. Oh my that looks good! I have a ice cream bucket full of tomatoes in my fridge and was wondering what to do with them... Now I do!

  18. not so much a tomato fan,but your shots make it good enough to eat-seriously. What sort of camera do you use? We are in the market for a new one and I am taking a poll. : )

  19. OhMyGosh!! Someone from So. California read my blog and commented on it!?! AND... I now love your blog too! Come on down for the pork tasting any time you want! We'll definitely hook you up! :)

  20. thank you for your comments... I love them so much!

    Shannon- I use a Canon rebel xSi and I love it soo much. I originally wanted a Nikon but i liked the way the canon felt in my little hands. make sure to go down to a store and hold the cameras and play with the settings

  21. Yum - tomato pie! That one looks good. Love the heirlooms you used.

  22. I made the mistake of looking at your blog hungry again...I have to make this pie, it looks amazing!

  23. Totally sounds like something I would do. Or actually, something I already do! And since hubby doesn't like tomatoes I'd have this all to myself. Sounds yummy!!

    PS- pie crust is easy once you start making it all the time (even for lazy people! doesn't take too long).


Your comments make my day- thanks for visiting!
