Tomato-Corn Pie

July/August 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (99 votes)

Tomatoes and corn have a natural affinity for one another: the slight acidity of tomatoes balances the sweetness of the corn. Here they partner in a delicious quiche-like pie. The dough is very forgiving and bakes up into a sturdy shell that’s great for just about any savory pie or tart. Perfect for a summer brunch or try it with a tossed salad for a light supper.

Delicious!

Although pre-baking the crust (if you choose to) does take a while, this is a very easy and delicious recipe.

The only change I would make is that next time I would mix in the salt, pepper, and thyme with the egg mixture - sprinkling it on in the middle of construction of this caused it to clump together in some parts, which was always came as a surprise while eating it.

Overall - this recipe is definitely a keeper!

I've made this several times for company and at-home supper. The crust is a winner--stays crispy even as leftovers. I used heirloom tomatoes [yellow] with the other farm stand ones and it made a pretty presentation. Everyone who has had this loves it. It's a keeper for my summertime recipes.

A great spin on the classic quiche! I added some ham to mine, used a normal pie crust recipe, and used basil instead of thyme since that was all we had. My husband even said to write this recipe down so we can have it again! The only thing I might do differently is use less tomatoes. They seemed to overpower all of the other great flavors in this recipe.

This recipe turned out well and was a great way to use up extra corn and tomatoes from my farm share. It was a hit as a summer dinner with friends and a couple toddlers. Similar to other reviewers I used a pre-made crust, which saves time but might not have as much flavor. I'd add a bit more salt and pepper to this recipe the next time I make it.
