Easy Tomato Pie recipe tastes like comforting cheesy southern tomato pie but without the work! Just mix and pat in a fluffy Bisquick crust, top with sharp cheddar cheese mayo filling, and layer on fresh tomato slices.
Place a double layer of paper towels on a baking sheet. Lay fresh tomato slices on top and gently press two more layers of paper towel over the tomatoes. Let stand for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400°F. Meanwhile mix together Bisquick, 1/2 cup shredded cheese, milk, butter, garlic powder, basil, and oregano. Press into a greased pie plate on the bottom and up sides. Store crust in refrigerator until ready to use.
For filling mix together remaining cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, minced chives, apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper.
After tomatoes have drained remove crust from refrigerator. Spread on half cheese / mayo filling. Layer drained tomatoes on top, slightly overlapping. Spread remaining cheese / mayo filling on top of tomatoes.
Bake for 35-40 minutes or until crust has browned and top is bubbly. If desired, finish browning the top by broiling 1-2 minutes. Let stand 15 minutes before slicing.
