This Recipe Comes From My Mom
If your tomato plants are anything like mine, all the tomatoes seem to ripen at the same time. This year is no exception for me. Luckily, tomatoes are a versatile fruit (or vegetable depending on what team you’re on).
One of my favorite uses for all these tomatoes is a dish that my mom has been making ever since I can remember. It's good for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It's especially yummy with a side of sausage or bacon, and a tall glass of OJ. And, since I typically purchase the pre-made pie shells that come in quantities of two, I can make one for now and freeze one for later. So, without further ado, I give you Tomato Pie Floridian!
