    It tastes like my 20s! I haven't made this since the 80s but it's just as rich and delicious as I remembered. Only change I'd make is partially blind baking the crust.

    page 210. This was a smash hit when I first made it in 1974, and has stayed a favorite ever since. To take full advantage of the tomato-onion-basil flavors remaining in the skillet after the tomatoes have been added to the pie, pour the cream into the (somewhat cooled) skillet and stir to incorporate the butter and bits; then return liquid to mixing bowl to beat in the egg before pouring over the pie. A successful variation: leeks for onions, red potato slices for tomatoes, thyme and bacon for basil. Another is leeks, summer squash, and chives.
