Tomato Pie Recipe | Hanover, VA
When fresh tomatoes are in season here in Virginia (#RVA), nothing says summertime like a tomato pie in the oven. This recipe has been handed down from my Great Aunt Al who always served it at family gatherings. Still to this day it amazes me how many people have never heard of tomato pie. But, when they do hear about it they are immediately curious to try it. If you like tomatoes, here is what you will need to make your own slice of deliciousness that will have your friends raving summer after summer!
And remember, leftover tomato pie is just as delicious as the day you made it. Enjoy and don’t worry about the calories; they are worth every single one of them!
On another note: using the recipe above, although slightly modified, I entered the Hanover Vegetable Farm Tomato Pie contest back in August 2014 – and I won! So I guess that makes Great Aunt Al’s recipe award winning – thanks Great Aunt Al! The photo below is with the Hanover Vegetable Farm judges after winning the contest. If you are in the Hanover area, the vegetable farm is a great place to get your tomatoes.
