Yesterday, I fashioned my only-once-a-season summer tradition …
Neal’s Savannah Summer Tomato Pie.
Both labor and time-intensive, it is nevertheless a delight to the eyes, nose and tastebuds.
First the ingredients. Home grown tomatoes, if possible, and if not, locally grown ones at a produce stand or farmers market. HR and I get ours at Davis Produce a few miles away from us near Tybee Island.
Fresh basil and chives.
Diced bacon and shallots.
Wait, here’s a riveting video!
Layering cheese, bacon, herbs and shallot mixture with the tomatoes.
