The week’s recipe for Cheesy Creole Tomato Pie comes from Emeril’s cookbook, Farm to Fork: Cooking Local, Cooking Fresh. Creole tomato season is in full gear, and we couldn't be more excited. If you want to make this with local tomatoes in non-Creole season, we’ve got you covered with locally grown greenhouse tomatoes at all three markets. This dish makes a great brunch appetizer or a delicious summer dinner.
