I love this recipe because you can really customize it however you like. This is a great way to make use of your garden goodies during the summer time. I know for me, I grow a lot of tomatoes in my garden and this is a perfect way to utilize them. You can use whatever hot sauce or cheese your heart desires in this recipe. You could always add some fresh jalapeño to this pie for some extra kick and freshness! This is a perfect brunch idea or just a fun snack anytime!
