I LOVE pies. I really, really love pies. It isn’t often that I get a great recipe for a savory pie, one good enough for a meal or an unforgettable side dish. Usually always that means quiche, for me, otherwise pies are dessert.
But THIS Amish pie, given to me by an Amish friend I’ve written about elsewhere, is so good that I’d like you to have this recipe BEFORE the tomatoes come in to the garden, BEFORE your church picnics or reunions… you’ll want to keep this recipe handy!
2 c bisquick (she made it easy for me- otherwise use homemade biscuit mix)
2/3 c milk.
Mix together and spread it out evenly in a 10″ pie pan.
1 lb grated parmesan
1/2 t sweet basil
1/2 t garlic salt
1/2 t oregano
divide 1 1/2 c real mayonnaise (you could substitute this with olive oil, dressing, etc.- the Amish make their own mayonnaise)
Peel and slice 6 tomatoes
In layers, over the biscuit mix, put tomato slices, mixed cheese and spread a portion of the mayonnaise. Continue until all ingredients are used up, ending with a layer of cheese mix.
Bake 350 for about 35 mins until biscuit crust is done.
Serve hot or cold
I’d love to hear how you like this!
