Green Tomato, Apple, Custard Pie

 

 

Not a tomato quiche, not a dessert apple pie either, but a perfectly balanced, sweet-savory dinner pie which helps you use up those green tomatoes on your counter in the fall.

Green Tomato, Apple, Custard Pie

  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup or honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1  1/2 cups sliced green tomatoes
  • 1 apple, sliced
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 pie crust
  • freshly ground nutmeg
Method:
  1. Preheat oven to 375º.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, beat eggs and add milk, salt, maple syrup and cinnamon.
  3. Arrange green tomato and apple slices evenly in the pie crust.
  4. Pour egg mixture to cover. Sprinkle cheese on top and finish with a grind of fresh nutmeg.
  5. Place on cookie sheet (just in case of drips) and bake for 30-40 minutes.

Allow to cool for a few minutes (a pie like this is at its best when served warm) and enjoy a quick and easy meal (served with a salad) with enough left over for a slice for breakfast or lunch tomorrow.
