HPS, I have tried this before and it is delicious! I LOVE tomatoes and Roy is not a fan of them, so when I made this in the past, it was a dinner for me and I LOVED it! Thanks for posting!!

I know..Max HATES tomatoes too and I tried to trick him and tell him it was "Carpenter's pie" to no avail. No fooling that boy! Roy will LOVE the collards, though. Maybe Tomato pie is a good dish for our next tea or shower!
