As a part of my journey through the southern kitchen bucket list, I am creating this classic, delicious Tomato Pie today.
I made so much traction last year on my Southern Kitchen Bucket List project. Looking back at the list, it’s so inspiring to see how many recipes I actually tackled in just a year’s time.
Lessons were learned and a whole lot of trial and error went into perfecting each recipe. Some I had made before a dozen times and others were a first for me, with a mix of dishes I grew up eating to ones that were certainly not part of my normal rotation.
Today I’m continuing the quest to try more classics in my Southern kitchen and I’m sharing this delicious recipe for Tomato Pie.
My friend Stephanie got me hooked on this classic savory pie and she makes a killer version with lots of onions and smoked gouda that is just to die for. Anything that has homemade pie crust is a win in my book and I actually am equally torn between a sweet and a savory pie.
The best thing about this recipe is that you can kind of mix in whatever herbs or cheeses you want to to play with the flavor profiles here, much like you would any Italian dish. This recipe is almost quiche-like with it’s base of layered mozzarella and egg mixture so it’s got a great heartiness to it for comfort food season.
I teamed up with my friends at Red Gold Tomatoes for this one and used a traditional take on the recipe here. Their whole peeled tomatoes were named #1 by Epicurious and they are especially perfect this time of year for bringing in the flavors of Summer.
Hope you’ll pop over and give it a try, and if you’re giving my Southern Kitchen Bucket List a try I’d love to know how it’s coming for you.
