BLT Pie

Who doesn’t love BLT’s (bacon, lettuce and tomato)?  I guarantee you will get your BLT fix with this pie, because it includes onion and cheese, as well!  It’s a one dish dinner – my kind of weeknight cooking!

I recommend using fresh, home-grown (or farmer’s market) tomatoes in this BLT pie.  Store bought just doesn’t do it justice!  Enjoy and support your local farmer!

Helpful Hint:  I always try my recipes (again) before posting to make sure they are still up to my standards and to take pics, etc.  I made this BLT pie twice.  The first time I followed my recipe.  The second time, before I sprinkled on the cheese, I combined the cheese with 1/2 cup of mayonnaise.  My family loved the first one, but they raved about the second one, saying it was more moist and creamy and they liked it even better.  On both occasions, there were no leftovers!

BLT Pie

Ingredients

  • 1 pie crust (bought or homemade)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 T all purpose flour
  • 1 medium tomato, thinly sliced
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Lettuce

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400. Mix chopped onion and flour and sprinkle onto the pie crust. Top with tomato slices, bacon and cheese. Bake pie, uncovered, for about 25 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with lettuce.
  2. Variation: I sometimes add 1/2 cup mayonnaise to the cheese and mix it up before spreading it on the BLT pie. My family actually likes it better than the original recipe. Both ways are delicious!
