    Curious if anybody has a favorite dish they'd like to share. I have 104 tomato plants and although my grape and cherry tomatoes have been coming in for a while, now all my roma's, big boys and brandywines are filling in as well! I love tomato and cucumber salad and eat that daily but what else we talking here?

    My favorite way to eat tomatoes is just sliced with some salt. I snack on them all day long.

    Tomato sandwiches are my favorite! Just with a bit of salt & pepper! [​IMG] Mmmm

    Here's my tomato sauce recipe though, I have so many I need to can as much as I can this time of year.

    Fogl's Slow Simmered Tomato Sauce:

    6 cups tomatoes peeled cored and chopped
    1 Medium yellow onion chopped
    1 tsp chopped fresh oregano
    8 Leaves fresh chopped Basil
    3 minced garlic cloves
    1 4oz can tomato paste
    2 tsp sugar
    2 tbsp red balsamic vinegar
    1-2 tsp kosher salt to taste
    1 tsp cracked black pepper
    (option pinch of red chili flakes)

    Bring all ingredients in the pot to a boil and reduce to low. Put lid on the pot for 1 hour then stir and remove lid. Continue to simmer and stir regularly from 3-4 hours. Taste as you go, add more salt/pepper to taste.

    I made this recipe just last week; you could use canned stewed tomatoes or chunks of your homegrown tomatoes cooked with the onion and a little chopped bell pepper if you like. This was similar to the scalloped tomatoes that I have always loved, but easier.

    TOMATO PUDDING (ruthanna) – sort of like Scalloped Tomatoes
    2 (1 lb.) cans stewed tomatoes or about 4 cups of chopped fresh tomatoes
    1 medium onion, halved and slivered
    1/2 a green bell pepper, chopped fine - if using fresh tomatoes
    1 Tbsp. dark brown sugar
    salt and pepper to taste
    2 Tbsp. butter or margarine, divided
    2 Tbsp. water
    1 cup Pepperidge Farm herb-seasoned stuffing mix

    In saucepan, cook tomatoes, onion, pepper, sugar, s&p, and 1 Tbsp. butter over medium-high heat until liquid is reduced by half 10 to 15 minutes. Pour into shallow 1 1/2 quart casserole dish. Melt other tablespoon of butter with water; stir in stuffing mix. Spread topping over tomatoes and bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes or until tomatoes are heated and topping is golden.

    Notes: Dry bread cubes can be substituted for the stuffing mix. The tomato-onion mixture can be prepared ahead of time. Just don't add the topping until ready to bake.

    I halved this recipe when I made it and that worked well.
