Alternate layers of egg and tomatoes in a shallow baking dish.

Top with bread crumbs. Bake 35-40 minutes in 350 degree oven. Can be assembled the night before and baked in the morning.





Also, I have a vague memory of baking a green tomato pie, but I can't find the recipe. I think you just bake it like an apple pie. If anyone tries this, let me know.
