RECIPE: TOMATO PIE
Looking for a simple but yummi recipe with tasty tomatoes? I just love to bake a tomato pie, it’s so easy to do and it fits perfectly with a brunch menu!
All you need is:
- 750 g tomatoes
- 3 eggs
- 200 ml fresh cream
- 150 g grated cheese, I do prefer Swiss cheese
- freshly grounded black pepper
- some cayenne pepper
- freshly grounded nutmeg
- puff pastry (well either you make it by yourself, or you buy it, like I normally do for this kind of pie 🙂 )
First lay the puff pastry in the adapted pan and prick it delicately with a fork. You can already preheat your oven at 200° C.
Slice each tomato in 8 pieces. You can even blanch and peel them if you prefer. I do normally pass this step! 🙂
Now whisk the fresh cream with the eggs and the cheese. Vigorously spice this mass with salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper and nutmeg. Don’t forget to taste if it’s strong enough. If not, just add some more!
Take the dough and spread the tomato slices the same way you would do for an apple pie! Sprinkle some salt and pepper over the tomatoes before adding the egg- and cheese sauce.
It’s now time to put the pie into the oven for around 45 minutes. Let the pie chill down a bit and serve it with some salad or simply add it to your brunch buffet.
