Fashion Friday: Milly, Tomato Pie and Horses

My sister (#5 of the 6) posted this tomato pie recipe on her blog, Heads in the Books, Still Time to Cook, the other week, and I’m just dying to make it.  We have about another week’s wait-time on our tomatoes in our garden, before their red, ripe and ready.  We did make fried green tomatoes the other night, and they were divine!

  • 4 tomatoes, peeled and sliced
  • 10 fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 (9 inch) prebaked deep dish pie shell
  • 1 cup grated part skim mozzarella
  • 1 cup grated low fat cheddar (if buying store-bought – make sure it’s Kraft, melts better!)
  • 1 cup non-fat mayonnaise
  • Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Place tomatoes in a colander in one layer. Pat dry with paper towel (pie will be soggy if tomatoes aren’t drained). Sprinkle with salt and pepper on each layer and allow to drain for 10 minutes.

Layer the tomato slices, basil, and onion in the pie shell. Season with salt and pepper. Combine the grated cheeses and mayonnaise together. Spread mixture on top of the tomatoes and bake for 30 minutes or until lightly browned.

To serve, cut into slices and serve warm.  YUM!

Just a heads up, Milly will be featured on Rue La La today, starting at 11am.  Click here for your free invitation.  Bikinis and cover-ups will be featured.  I hope I can grab one before they’re all gone!

I had some readers email me about where I purchased my red and white striped top, that I wore over the 4th of July holiday weekend.  I got it at Anthropologie a couple of weeks ago, it’s by AG.  LOVE it!  It’s super soft, and not that expensive.  They also carry it in a navy and white stripe.

  1. I've never heard of this, but it looks delicious – I think I may have to try it as well. And you and your daughter both look adorable in your fourth of july outfits! Have a great weekend

  2. Can you believe that I have never made tomato pie? You are the second person that has done a post about it this week and I have to make it as soon as I have a few more ripe tomatoes. That rocking horse is a piece of art! Too bad I don't have a little one or else I would be splurging on one. Have a great weekend!

  3. I used that same recipe last week but my tomato pie definitely didn't look as good as the one if your picture! 🙂

  4. That rocking horse is gorgeous and I was so bummed I missed the Milly sale..I had a crazy deal and when I finally checked my email and realized Milly was on RueLaLa all the stuff I loved was sold out!
