Tomato pies are huge in my family. They are so simple to prepare and deliver so much flavor. Our pimento cheese tomato pie takes it to another level. In the summertime, I love to use our fresh garden tomatoes to make this recipe. I’ve served this special dish for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner. It always receives compliments. I’ve handed this recipe out numerous times.
Ingredients Needed for Pimento Cheese Tomato Pie:
1 9 inch pie crust
Medium tomatoes, sliced
Shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Recipe Notes: If you don’t have fresh basil and parsley you can always use dried herbs. Just cut the amount in half. If you like this recipe you may want to also try our traditional Southern tomato pie. It has fantastic reviews.
