Want to use up some of those tomatoes in the garden? Make a tomato pie. This pie is easy and good.

1 deep dish pie shell (I used a bought one, can make your own)
tomatoes, (about 3 cups if using chopped tomatoes) sliced
green onions (can use regular chopped onions) enough to make about 1/2 cup, chopped
1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
Salt & Pepper
2 to 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
5 pieces bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
Shredded cheese (about 1 1/2 cups of your choice) I used shredded parmesan, swiss, and mexican 1/2 cup of each

Cook empty pie crust for about 10 minutes in 400 degree oven. Be sure to punch holes in the bottom of the crust. Remove from oven and add a layer of cheese, onion, and tomatoes. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, oregano and basil. Continue layering until ingredients are gone except for 1/2 cup of cheese. Mix together the crumbled bacon, mayo, and cheese and spread on top of the pie. Sprinkle with extra cheese if you want. Cook in preheated 350 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes. Let stand for at least 15 minutes before cutting. (Note: I chopped my tomatoes and let them drain in a colander for at least 30 minutes before adding to pie) Most people slice the tomatoes. Don't go overboard on the mayo and try to use firm tomatoes. You don't want the pie to be juicy. ENJOY!
