Tomatoes,bacon and cheese make up this yummy pie.

3 medium,ripe tomatoes,sliced
6 strips bacon,fried and crumbled

    Yes, thwey are great. Took your recipe and played with it. Thanks again Larry!

    Pie, Tomatoe, Bacon, Cheese, Richard Fl

    Took some ideas from YB and Bryan Love and played with them. Great flavor.


    1 9 Inch Deep Dish Pie Shell
    2-3 Tomatoes, Sliced thinly and then in halves
    1 Medium Red Onion, thinly sliced and then in halves--OR--
    1 Bunch Green Onions
    1 Cup Mayonnaise
    1 Cup Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Grated
    6-8 Slices Bacon, Cooked to be Crunchy
    Basil, Fresh, Chopped
    2-3 Tbs Blue or Gorganzola Cheese, Crumbled (Optional ).
    Salt/Pepper to taste
    Guave or Apple wood for "LITTLE" smoke flavor

    1 Poke fork in bottom of pie shell before cooking so as to give the air a chance to escape.
    2 Cook pie shell at 375°F for about 10 minutes in regular oven.
    3 When the pie shell has cooled, layer sliced tomatoes, onions and bacon bits almost to top and chopped fresh basil leaves. Save some bacon and basil to sprinkle on the top of the cheese/mayo mixture. Mix the mayonnaise and cheese together and then spread on top.
    4 Set BGE up for indirect, legs up. Place pie on grate and cook for 45-60 minutes at 350°F.

    Went to make one this AM and did not have but 1/2 Cup Mayo so used sour cream for the difference. Made the pie nice and moist. Will probably do it the next time. Left out the Blue cheese this time.

    Now that looks great, My Friend! Not too good a year here in South Texas. We are currently in the driest September to July stretch in recorded history....just a tad over 6" since last Sept. Needless to say, we are cooking.

    Hope all is well.

    We really like them Randy and the lump really gives them a good flavor.

    Gosh, out here, Tomato Pie is a tomato and cheese pizza. Or no cheese. But a pizza.
