My family has a few friends who are really more like family. I have almost as many memories with them as I do with my siblings. I am so grateful for those relationships and you should be as well. Because, behold- I bring you the Tomato Cheddar Pie!
Handed down from one of our friends to myself is this recipe that was originally her Mother’s. Over the years she has made this pie for me and 3 years ago at a recipe shower I had before getting married, she shared this one with me.
Perfect for Brunch, Lunch, or Dinner this savory pie is especially perfect for the upcoming tomato crop this summer. (Not to mention it is a pretty pastry as well) Add this pie to your edible bucket list for the summer. Although, I made this pie, just last week- I will definitely be making it again! I hope that you enjoy this delicious hand me down as much as I do!
