8 ounces Monterey jack
1/4 Vidalia onion, grated
Grey Poupon Dijon Mustard

How to make The Best Southern Tomato Pie
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F.
Step 2: Cut the tomatoes to your preferred thickness, then lay the pieces on a paper towel and sprinkle them with kosher salt and a little bit of sugar. On top of the tomatoes, place another paper towel and let the tomatoes sit for about 5 to 10 minutes. Apply pressure very carefully to the tomatoes to remove the rest of the juice, but do not squish.
Step 3: Place the sharp cheddar, Monterey Jack, Parmesan, mayonnaise, diced pimentos, freshly-grated Vidalia onion, minced onion, and black pepper in a large bowl. Mix well until combined. Add the mayonnaise gradually (you can also add more) until you reached your desired consistency. Stir well.
Step 4: Apply a thin later of Grey Poupon Dijon Mustard to the pie crust using a brush or spoon, covering the pie crust completely.
Step 5: Then, add a layer of tomatoes and top with pimento cheese mixture.
Step 6: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 20 minutes. Then, turn the oven to broil for about 2 to 4 minutes. Once the top of the pie is perfectly browned, take the pie out of the oven and sprinkle it with basil.
Step 7: Slice and serve. Enjoy!
