This summer I have a pretty delicious problem: a neighbor with too many tomato plants. Every week she comes by with a box of ripe tomatoes in every shape and size imaginable. We've eaten our fill of BLTs and tomato and chickpea salads and now we need some other ways to make sure those tomatoes don't go to waste before summer ends. This list of 15 tomato recipes is just as much for me as it is for you.
Borderline Breakfast Tomatoes
You could eat these tomato recipes any time of day, but imagine that tomato cobbler coming to the brunch table and being perfectly paired with cold bubbly Prosecco.
- Tomato Cobbler with Cornmeal-Cheddar Biscuits
- Tomato and Feta Galette
- Tomato Water Pops
- 15-Minute Fresh Tomato and Feta Tart
Tomatoes and Bread
There's no more iconic a Southern sandwich than tomato and mayonnaise on white bread (and please trust that I've had my fill this summer), but when you grow tired of that staple here are a few ideas light on the cooking and heavy on the tomato flavor.
- How To Make the Best Tomato Grilled Cheese Sandwich
- Caprese Avocado Toast
- Blistered Tomato Toasts
- 1-Minute Tomato Sandwich
Tomatoes for Dinner
Here are a few recipes that use up tomatoes for dinner and don't start with you cooking them on the stovetop. The tomato soup below even uses canned tomatoes (or just chop and roast your own ahead of time). If you haven't tried it yet, fish in crazy water is another standout that everyone should be so lucky to taste.
