Mini Tomato Pies

May 23, 2023

Let’s make mini tomato pies.  A bite size version of our beloved Southern favorite.  When I saw these mini pie shells at the grocery store I knew I needed them!  These come together in minutes and make the cutest appetizer.  Or serve with a simple green salad as a meal!  Enjoy!

M I N I  T O M A T O  P I E S 

1 package mini pie shells 

2-3 tomatoes

1/2 white onion diced 

1 cup shredded fresh basil 

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese 

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese 

1/4 cup mayo

1/2 teaspoon salt 

1/2 teaspoon pepper 

1 teaspoon hot sauce 

Slice the tomatoes and lay on paper towels for about 30 minutes to absorb extra water. 

In a bowl mix both cheeses, mayo, salt and pepper and hot sauce.  

Press mini pie shells in a muffin baking dish.  

Add a layer of the cheese mixture, diced onions, tomatoes and Basil.  Top with more cheese mixture and a tomato slice.  

Bake at 350 degrees 30-40 minutes 

Sprinkle with fresh basil and enjoy
