Pimento Cheese Bacon Tomato Pie

Tomatoes, bacon, cheese, sour cream, and mayonnaise combine for one delicious recipe. When I first heard of a Tomato Pie I thought ‘there’s no way that’s good’. But, alas, it is. If you like tomato sandwiches, tomato tarts, or tomato casserole chances are you’ll like this pie.

PIMENTO CHEESE BACON TOMATO PIE

  • You can make a homemade pie crust. I have two recipes for you, Never-Fail Pie Crust and Coconut Oil Pie Crust. Both are wonderful!
  • As well, you can simply purchase a ready-made pie crust as I did.
  • Furthermore, feel free to buy pimento cheese unless you have a favorite recipe that you want to make. My Jalapeno Pimento Cheese recipe is especially tasty. As well, if you don’t want jalapeno try Easy Pimento Cheese.

  • My secret and most important tip for keeping the crust from getting soggy is two-fold. First, I blind bake the crust. This means that you pre-bake the crust without the filling. Instead, you fill the crust with parchment paper then baking beans (aka pie weights), and bake it. Next, I place brie cheese on top of the crust before I added the tomatoes. This creates a barrier and prevents the tomato juices from soaking into the crust. You can substitute any cheese for the brie.
  • Another tip for preventing the crust from getting soggy is to drain the tomatoes really well. Salt the tomatoes, salt pulls out the liquid. However, if you salt the tomatoes, you probably don’t want to add salt anywhere else in the recipe.
  • I have found through trial and error that this pie slices much better if you peel the tomatoes and dice (instead of slice) the tomatoes.

Ok, that’s it for the most important tips. Scroll down for the full recipe.
