Here's the recipe I just finished writing up to go with this one... see following notes as well.....
If you are looking for something to do with all those tomatoes you have collected from your garden this summer, here's a fun and delicious way to get them in a dish on your grill!
Summer Tomato Pie
1 Pie Crust (pre baked or par baked)
2 1/2 pounds of fresh tomatoes, sliced 1/4" thick
1 1/4 cup (divided) grated extra sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 shallots, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon tabasco sauce
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
4 pieces of cooked bacon, crumbled
Preheat your grill to 425°F and setup for indirect cooking. Spread 1/4 cup of grated cheddar cheese across the bottom of the pie crust and place it in the grill for 5 minutes or so until the cheese is melted and then remove from the grill to cool.
Place your sliced tomatoes on a pan and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place on the grill and let roast for 20 minutes. Remove from grill and let cool for 20 minutes.
Reduce the grill temperature to 350°F.
Place half of your crumbled bacon on the bottom of the pie crust. Place half of your tomatoes and half of your scallions into the pie shell. Repeat with another layer of tomatoes and scallions. Combine the remaining ingredients excpet the basil and bacon and mix completely. Spread the cheese mixture evenly across the top of the pie. Top with bacon and basil.
Return to the grill for about 30 minutes or until bubbly and nicely browned on top. Remove from grill, cover with foil, and let rest for 15 minutes or so before serving.
This would turn into an amazing pizza without a lot of change. I would make a pizza crust and par bake it just like I did with the pie shell here. I would make the cheese topping just like I did here and smear it all over that par baked crust. I would take the roasted tomatoes and cover the top of the pizza with them. I would probably put the bacon and chopped basil on there too and go back to the grill until it looked amazing....
I'm definitely gonna be trying this....
