• Tomato Pie Recipe

    It's 6 o'clock, what's for dinner?  Innocent enough of a question in itself but after a long day of work, what is the answer?  From my years of being on the road and facing this question on a daily basis I have compiled a reservoir of ideas.  Recipes that are simple to create in a Tiny Home, long on flavor and sure to be among your favorites. For those of you that choose to make a meal in one pan or baking dish, lets get started!

    Tomato Pie

    Feel free to use a traditional pie pan or round casserole, just about anything that you can mold a single pie crust into to hold this marvelous mixture.

    Feel free to experiment after making this the first time as you may desire more or less of some ingredients. I make adjustments as sometimes I may not have on hand enough of one cheese and need to use more of another to fill the amounts required.


    Tomato pie ingredients list

    Ingredient List

    1 single pie crust (home made or store bought if short on time or ingredients)
    1 cup of any style of Mayonnaise or 1/2 cup mayo and 1/2 cup sour cream (my favorite)
    8 oz Cheddar cheese shredded (2 cups) separated into 2 bowls 1-1/2 cup and 1/2 cup
    1/4 tsp ground black pepper
    2-4 sliced scallions
    4-6 ripe Italian plum tomatoes cored and sliced


    I have always LOVED my Convection Microwave!! Small to heat, quick to warm up and all around efficient.

    With that said, pre-heat to 350

    Line baking pan with dough and pinch or fork crimp the edges, prick bottom and sides a few times with fork.


    Tomato pie crusts

    Bake 8-10 min till dough dries out and starts to puff. Remove and set aside.

    While waiting,
    Mix in a bowl the following

    Cheese 1-1/2 cup

    sour cream filling tomato pie


    Here I sprinkle a small amount of the 1/2 cup of cheese in the bottom once crust is ready. 


    sour cream first layer

    Alternate next with a row of tomato slices then the bowl mixture until all ingredients are used.

    I try to finish with the last layer being tomatoes and then lastly sprinkle the remaining cheddar cheese.

    sour cream filling layer 2

    final layer tomato pie

    Bake 30-40 minutes until golden brown and the tomato layer is melted and shriveling.


    finished tomato pie


    Let stand to cool 10-15 min then prepare to devour most of it!
    Any remains can be easily reheated for further meals or snacks.

    Once our garden is overflowing this is a staple during the summer. If you have a farmers market feel free to experiment with different tomato varieties.
