“This recipe is from Rebecca Laney-Meers, Jackson Mississippi and she was one of the winners in the Mississippi magazine contest. Her memories of this pie take her back to the 1960s when as a child in her grandmother Kate’s kitchen in west Jackson she renamed the recipe Tommy Toe Pie. It was called Tomato Pie. Rebecca’s time with her grandmother was quality time, and over the years she has tried many tomato pies, but grandmother Kate’s has remained the best. And when the tomatoes start coming in from the garden, this is her go-to recipe for her family. Thanks Rebecca! Feel free to add in fresh herbs, like the basil, oregano, etc. Enjoy!”
