Savory Gluten-Free End-of-Summer Tomato Pie Recipe

Prep Time: 20 minutes


  • 3 large tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 large yellow onion, sliced thinly
  • 6 ounces shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 large egg, whisked
  • 1 box (4.25 ounces) of gluten-free almond smokehouse crackers (such as Blue Diamond)
  • (Optional) 8 ounces uncooked, thick-cut bacon
  • Black pepper to taste


  • Preheat your oven to 375 F.
  • Spray your baking dish or pie dish.
  • Slice your tomatoes and onions thinly then cut each slice in half to form half circles.
  • Place the full box of gluten-free crackers into a freezer bag, closing it. Using your hands, crumble the crackers into small bits. Set aside.
  • In your dish, layer: crumbled crackers, small handful of shredded cheddar cheese, sliced tomatoes, sliced onions, then cheddar cheese again – covering the layer this time.
  • Sprinkle the top with black pepper to your liking.
  • Repeat the layer if room allows. Most dishes will allow for two of the layers.
  • In a bowl, whisk one egg. Then, pour the egg across the top of the pie, aiming to cover end-to-end with strips of the egg. It will sink down into the layers.
  • (Optional) Lay the strips of bacon across the top of the pie until covered.
  • Bake the pie for 45 minutes or up to an hour (until the bacon is thoroughly cooked and the cheese is golden).
