Tomato, Cheddar and Bacon Pie

tomato, cheddar, bacon pie

This tomato, cheddar and bacon pie is a must when tomatoes are at their peak.  Heirlooms are the ideal pick here.   Even when they’re out of season, canned San Marzano tomatoes will do, but you MUST do this in Summer, when tomatoes are at their best.  Of course, making the pie crust from scratch is best, but even good quality store bought works wonderfully here, too!  O.M.G. …this is one of our all-time favorites!
