Cuisine: American
Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • 1 frozen deep dish pie shell
  • 6-7 strips of bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 4 medium sized firm ripe tomatoes sliced
  • 1 medium sized onion peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup shredded provolone or mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • Basil, fresh or dried to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Bake pie shell according to directions on the package, being careful not to allow it to get too brown because it is going back in the oven after filling is added.
  2. When finished with pie shell set the oven temperature to 350 degrees.
  3. Slice tomatoes and place in colander over a bowl, sprinkle with salt and allow to drain for at least 15 minutes while you crisp the bacon, bake the pie shell and prepare cheese mixture.
  4. Mix cheeses and mayonnaise together in a small bowl.
  5. Layer tomato and onion slices in the pie shell sprinke with salt and peppe to taste. Add a dash or two of basil, again to your taste. Add about half of the crumbled bacon.
  6. Don't worry if it seems a little heaping. The tomatoes and onions are going to shrink a little during baking. Try to get all that goodness into your pie shell without overflowing onto the crust rim.
  7. Spoon the cheese/mayo mixture on top and spread so that it covers the top like a crust. I actually use my hands to spread the top evenly working with it and molding it as if working with clay. Scatter the remainder of the crumbled bacon over the top.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 35-40 minutes until golden brown. Check on pie about halfway through baking time to see if you need to add a little aluminum foil around the crust edge to keep it from over browning.
  9. Let cool for about 20 minutes and serve warm.
