Farmer's Market Summer Tomato Pie

I was looking for a tomato recipe to try and found a post on TOHBB. It was for a request for a pie recipe that a person couldn't find. One of the members, MarineMom (Joan) found this one and I though it looked pretty good so wanted to give it a try.
I added more bacon than the recipe called for and used a mexcian cheese blend. I also didn't use breadcrumbs, I crushed  Townhouse crackers.

Farmer's Market Summer Tomato Pie
3-4 large tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and sliced
1 tsp. salt, divided
1 pie crust, baked
4 slices bacon
1 1/2 medium sweet onions, halved and thinly sliced
1 cup (4 oz.) sharp Wisconsin white Cheddar cheese
1 cup Hellman's mayonnaise
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp. fine breadcrumbs
Cook bacon in large skillet until crisp. Remove, drain bacon on paper towels and reserve. Leave 1 tsp. bacon grease in skillet. Crumble bacon and set aside

Place tomato slices on paper towels; sprinkle with salt. Set aside for 30 minutes to draw out as much moisture as possible.
Saute onions in leftover bacon grease in skillet over medium high heat for 8-10 minutes or until tender.
Spoon onions into prepared pie crust. Blot salted tomatoes with more paper towels and place ontop of onions in pie pan.
Mix together grated cheese, mayonnaise, pepper, remaining 1/2 tsp. salt and spread mixture over tomato slices. Mix Parmesan and bread crumbs and sprinkle on top of pie.
Bake at 350º for 30 minutes.

We both loved this recipe. We both gave it 5 stars~
