Savory Green Tomato Cheese Pie by The Moose Girls
When we are having a bad tomato season and all we seem to do is grow green tomatoes, we make our savory green tomato cheese pie. A few suggestions are in order: When ever possible use the early green tomatoes, when the skins are not so tough. If you are using late tough skinned green tomatoes then blanch them and remove the skins before beginning our savory green tomato cheese pie by the Moose Girls – Judy & Jackie.
