Love this pie. The intense flavor of the fresh tomatoes made my toes curl. No kidding. It’s definitely worthy of a homemade crust if you have the time.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Cut tomatoes in half and lightly squeeze to remove excess juice and seeds. Slice tomatoes and place in a single layer on a couple layers of paper towels. Sprinkle with salt and let sit for about 20 minutes, to get rid of excess moisture.
Once your pie shell is cooked and still hot from the oven, cover the bottom with Parmesan cheese and 1/2 of the shallots. Let cool.
In a medium bowl, mix together the grated cheddar and Havarti cheese, mayonnaise, hot sauce, and a sprinkling of salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Layer 1/2 the tomatoes into the pie crust, cover with remaining shallots and 1/2 the basil. Repeat with the remaining tomatoes and basil.
Spread the cheese mixture over the top of the pie, place in the oven and bake until browned and bubbly, 35-50 minutes. Cover crust edge with foil during cooking to protect from over browning, if needed.
While my hubby used frozen fries (which also work great), this recipe starts from scratch, because I have plenty of potatoes in the bin. The fries come out crisp without being fried while the seasoning adds a nice flavor with a little kick of spice. This recipe will please husbands, wives, kids … even in-laws!
Cassava, also known as yuca, was one of my discoveries when visiting the Mexican vendors at my local flea market. Although the root vegetable is not indigenous to Mexico I seasoned this dish with some popular Mexican seasonings, then roasted it and enjoyed it (along with a couple of cold Dos Equis)!
Grilled fresh corn on the cob.
The big debate? Cook with husks on or husks off? I say husks off! Cook on the grill, this way the sweet corn kernels get a smoky-grilled flavor. There’s no need to blanch it first. Use a stove top grill or outside grill–just peel, remove silk and place right on the grill. Simple as that! Then top it with a homemade chili lime mayo and fresh cilantro.
