Spring Recipe: Tomato Pie

0

Spring is here, and it’s time to grab your favorite bottle of wine, a delicious snack, and sit out on your deck with friends. Kate Hull, marketing assistant at Grand Targhee Resort, shared her favorite spring recipe with me and I can’t wait to make it. This delicious tomato pie is filling enough for dinner on it’s own or a crowd pleaser at summer gatherings! DSCF0762

You can use either small cherry tomatoes or large tomatoes for this and an assortment of herbs. To boost the flavor, use a mixed herb goat cheese instead of plain goat cheese crumbles. Serve this tart with a glass of Jackson Hole Winery Red and you’ve got yourself the perfect meal.

Spring Tomato Pie

Ingredients

  • 1 9-inch piecrust
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 ½ ripe tomatoes, seeded
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 tablespoons fresh basil, roughly chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 ounces goat cheese crumbled
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • Cut your tomatoes, not too thin but not too thick. I like to seed about half of them so it isn’t too runny, but feel free to seed them all or none if you wish.
  • Brush the Dijon mustard at the bottom of the piecrust.
  • Arrange the tomatoes, overlapping slightly.
  • Season to taste.
  • Roughly chop the basil and scatter over the veggies.
  • In a separate bowl, beat together the eggs and goat cheese.
  • Pour over the tomato and herbs. Drizzle the olive oil over the filling.
  • Bake for 30 to 40 minutes until the top is golden brown. If your crust edges get too brown too quickly, cover the edges of the pie with foil.
