I love to experiment with pies.
They can be sweet or they can be savory.
What can go wrong with a pie?!
We had an abundant amount of tomatoes this year from our green house,
and I just happen to come across this recipe tucked
in one of my cookbooks and thought I would give it a try.
I hope you all do too,
it's such a flavorful pie!
Ham & Tomato Pie
1 1/2 cooked and cubed Ham
1/2 c. Green Onions, sliced
1 Pie Crust, unbaked
1 Tbsp. Dijon Mustard
1 c. Mozzarella Cheese
2 medium Plum Tomatoes, thinly sliced
1/3 c. Half & Half
1 Tbsp. Basil (fresh or dried)
1/8 tsp. Black Pepper
Lightly sauté the ham and the onion, for about 3-5 minutes.
Brush the bottom of the pie shell with the Dijon mustard. Sprinkle with 1/2 c. mozzarella cheese and then top with a single layer of the sliced tomatoes. Beat the egg and the half and half, until well blended. Pour over the tomatoes. Sprinkle evenly with the basil, pepper and remaining cheese.
Bake in a 425 degree oven for 20-23 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Cool for about 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
Have a great week!
