Cheesy Tomato Pie

My Fall cabi line is here and I am back in business after wrapping up the Spring line in June. I went to Orlando 2 weeks ago to see the new line at the fashion show and for training. It was so fun! My new team member and I had a great time!
Here I am with my new team member Abby!
 The fashion show is my favorite part of the whole weekend!

 When I got home, my beautiful friends and hostesses came over to help me set up all the clothes.
 I had my first show on Sunday. I took a picture in front of my hostesses door because our theme this season is "Welcome Home." God has blessed me so much this year in my business. It makes me excited to see what is to come this fall!

A couple of weeks ago my mom was raving about this simple tomato pie recipe she had made. She even did her cooking segment for the week on it. So when I had some girls over for dinner I knew it would be a perfect summer dish for the girls. Everyone loved it and I have already made it since then! It is super easy and has so much flavor!

Cheesy Tomato Pie

1 refrigerated pie crust
5-6 tomatoes
1/2 cup chopped green onions
2 Tbsp chopped basil
2 Tbsp chopped thyme
1 cup grated each of your favorite cheeses (I used a cheddar gruyere blend)
3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tbsp grated parmesan
salt and pepper

 Slice tomatoes and lay them out side by side on wire racks. Sprinkle them with salt and let them sit for about 10 minutes so that they will release some of their liquid.
Pre-bake pie crust according to the package instructions. Don't bake it all the way, you want it to be about halfway done. Then preheat oven to 350.
 Transfer tomato slices onto paper towels to drain the liquid.
 Chop herbs and green onions and mix together.
 Layer tomatoes into the bottom of the pre-baked pie crust.
 Then layer the herb and onion mix. Season with salt and pepper.

 Mix together the 2 cups of cheese with the mayo. (reserved parmesan for later) This mixture will be thick.
 Spread the cheese/mayo layer on top of the herb mixture. You may need to spoon out small dollops around the top, then use your fingers to smooth them together. Sprinkle with 2 Tbsp of parmesan cheese.
 Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until the cheese on the top begins to brown and bubble. Serve with a green salad and glass of white wine. The perfect girly summer meal!
