Yellow Tomato Pie

We had a large crop of lovely yellow tomatoes this year. They are very popular with some customers because they are less acidic than the red ones. I made this side dish with them. It works well with red tomatoes, but is a bit sweeter with the yellow.

I started by peeling and slicing enough yellow tomatoes to fill a pie plate.

They almost look like peaches in the earlier photos, but as you can see they really are tomatoes.

In a separate bowl, add 1 1/2 cup of bread crumbs. I used whole spelt bread crumbs. Add 1/4-1/3 cup of brown sugar, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. dried thyme (fresh works even better). Mix the ingredients and sprinkle them evenly over the tomatoes. Then you can drizzle melted butter on top. Or you can grate frozen butter because you forgot to thaw butter (like me) and it just struck you as something you had to do at the time. It looks like cheese on top, but it's 2 Tablespoons of grated butter. Bake in a 350' oven for 40 minutes.
***I did this once with a 1/3 cup of chopped pecans and it was delicious.

Would you believe that my family and our employee ate so fast that I didn't get a chance to photograph the finished dish? This one leftover spoonful still looked rather appetizing though.

Easy and delicious!


  1. Sounds and looks very delicious. Will have to look in the supermarket for those lovely yellow tomatoes:)

  2. I'm going to have to try this! Looks delish.

  3. I want some! Love the added humor too! LOL

  4. It looks yummy, Now I know what to do with the thousands of yellow tomato I have. I keep telling my family that they are so sweet they taste like a cherry and not a tomato, they don't believe me.
    They are really good though.

  5. mmmm... looks great! I love fresh (as in 'out of my garden' fresh) tomatoes. I bet the pie would be good with them - but I never have enough!

  6. I've never heard of this, but I bet I would like it, Patrice. It's pretty as well. :)
