Tomato pie , did you had it before ? It is one of the very popular dish on southern part of USA , I had this many years before , last weekend I picked up bunch of tomatoes from farmers market and suddenly I remember this dish , but since I am trying to eat healthy I didn’t go for the traditional recipe I made this crust less tomato pie , it’s very easy to make and it’s a crowd pleaser
4 tomatoes sliced
1-2 teaspoons salt
1 Tablespoon butter
1/2 cup onion chopped
1 clove garlic minced
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 Tablespoons fresh oregano chopped
6-7 leaves basil chopped
2 cups mozzarella cheese shredded, plus extra for sprinkling over top
2 eggs beaten
Couple slices of green bell pepper (optional )
Slice tomatoes and lay sliced on plates. Sprinkle lightly with salt and let sit at least 10-20 minutes, and up to 30 minutes.
Melt butter in small skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic and saute’ until onions are soft (about 8 minutes). Transfer to a medium-sized bowl.
Add cheese, eggs, herbs, and pepper to bowl. Stir to combine.
Drain water off of plates with tomatoes, With a paper towel, Gently blot tomatoes to soak up excess moisture.
Arrange tomatoes in a single layer on a greased pie pan. Top with about 1/4 cup of the cheese mixture. Repeat until all ingredients have been used, finishing with a layer of tomatoes and if you like slice of bell pepper to add color . Top this layer with a sprinkle of mozzarella cheese.
Bake at 375 degrees for 30-40 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned.
Allow to sit 5-7 minutes before serving
