I first posted this recipe about a year ago. And with tomatoes coming in, I thought it deserved a revisit. This has become one of our favorite recipes! All of us are always requesting my mom make this for any get together’s.
My mom loves to try new recipes. And she just loves to cook at the cabin. So, she saw a recipe on a local TV show for a BLT Pie and since I had brought up a ton of fresh tomatoes to the cabin last weekend, she decided to give it a try.
First thing is to slice up some tomatoes and salt both sides and let them sweat out some liquid.
Make up your favorite pie dough recipe and put in fridge for at least half an hour.
Fry up some bacon.
Sautee some sweet onions in the bacon grease
Then assemble the pie.
First the onions.
Next tomato slices.
Mix together 4 egg yolks and 1/2 cup of mayo. Spoon half the mixture over the pie.
Now repeat all of the above a second time. Put pie into a 350 degree oven and bake for 30 minutes.
And because we are a family that believes cheese just makes the world a happier place, some sliced provolone was melted on top.
Serve with shredded fresh lettuce on top….if you think about it before gobbling it down!
