Posted July 17, 2011 at 11:00pm by Ralphie

Last week we ventured into dessert and this one begins to enter breakfast territory. It comes from Andrew Cuomo's dad, as he will probably soon be known by our shitty media.

MARIO CUOMO ([Link] ): GOVERNOR, STATE OF NEW YORK / Born in Queens County, New York

6 slices bacon
1/4 cup butter
2 medium onions, finely chopped
2 lbs tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and chopped
Pinch of thyme
1 bay leaf
6 eggs
1 9" baked pie shell
Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Chop bacon into small pieces. In a heavy saucepan melt butter, add chopped bacon and onions and saute over moderate heat until golden in color. Add tomatoes, herbs and black pepper. Cover pan and simmer for 20 minutes. In bowl, beat eggs until well mixed. Discard bay leaf, allow tomato mixture to cool slightly. Combine in bowl with eggs, mix well. Pour mixture into pre-baked pie shell and bake for 25 to 30 minutes until filling is set and golden. Serve hot or cold.

Serves 6 to 8.
