Tomato Pie - Updated Again

I need to call this day Tweak Closet Cooking day. I used another one of his recipes (great cook in our northern neighbor). I tweaked this one to make it a little healthier. Fresh summer end tomatos from a friend came in handy and were so yummy and juicy!
His looked better, but mine was lower in fat and calories - and just as yummy!
Ok - and I am thinking about it more now. The pie crust is soggy - save your pie crust. Layer it all in a 8x8 pan sprayed. What would be good - get some day old italian bread - cube it up - make croutons. They harden and get nice and crunchy while the cheese melts. Still yummy!

Tomato Pie

1 frozen pie crust (or make your own)
4 tomatoes, thick sliced
2 green onions, chopped
1 tsp sugar
s/p to taste
3/4 cup light mayo
3/4 cup 2% sharp cheddar cheese
2 cooked pieces of bacon, chopped
pepper to top

Layer tomatoes with green onions and sugar - then s/p.
Mix rest and spread on top (that proved to be the most difficult). 400 - 25 minutes.
Ok - I'm eating this the next day w/o the crust - just the innards. Its not that great warmed up. So, I still think this is a great dish if you are going to serve it right then. Don't bother saving the leftovers!
