BLT Brunch Pie

My boys can't wait to pick the first ripe tomatoes in our garden to be used in this terrific pie. It has a tempting filling and tomatoes layered in a melt-in-your-mouth crust. And the crust is so easy to make- you just pat the dough into the pan! —Shara Walvoort, Oostburg, Wisconsin

    This was sooo amazingly delicious! I made it in my 9" deep dish tart pan with removable bottom. The presentation was as wonderful as the taste. I did add garlic powder and did not peel tomatoes, used jalapenos because that's what i had on hand (I'm from south Texas). It took 20 minutes longer because of the deep dish pan i used. Got so many compliments! Will definitely make this again&again!

    This is extremely delicious and I make it every summer! I do modify it a bit and use about 1/3 cup mayo and the rest sour cream as I don't like mayo. I find it takes me longer to make as well as I am not good at peeling tomatoes!

    Have made this several times and each time someone asks for the recipe. It is a favorite when we can pick the tomatoes from the garden.
