Tantalizing Tomato Ideas

Came across some juicy tomato ideas. (Any one have a favorite tomato recipe to share?)

Tantalizing Tomato Ideas

Tomato Napoleons: Cut peeled tomatoes into four crosswise slices. Layer with marscapone spiked with fresh dill and slivered smoked salmon. Serve on greens with toasts.

Tomato Tartar: Season chopped, seeded tomatoes with olive oil, lemon juice, capers, minced fresh basil, nicoise olives and onion. Serve on endive; use as a dip, or as a topping for crostini, steamed fish or baked potatoes.

Fresh Tomato Salad Pizza: Top pizza dough with Fontina and Parmesan cheese: bake until cheese melts and crust is golden. Top with sliced tomatoes, salad greens, sliced green olives and a drizzle of dressing.

Tomato Toast: Spread mayonnaise onto bread slices then place thinly sliced tomatoes on top (one or two layers). Sprinkle grated mozzarella on top. Bake in oven at 350 degrees F, about 15 minutes.

Roasted Tomatoes: Cut tomatoes in halves; squeeze to release seeds. Place on a rack on a shallow pan, cut-side down. Bake at 450 degrees F, until skin blisters, about 20 minutes.

Upside-Down Tomato Cornbread: Line greased skillet with season tomato slices; pour cornbread batter over tomatoes; cook until bread is done, then invert.

Caribbean Jerk Tomato Salad: Lightly grill tomato wedges brushed with a mixture of oil and jerk seasoning; toss with sliced avocado, hearts of palm and chunks of cool, cooked chicken or pork.

Charred Tomatoes with Garlic and Olives: Broil whole tomatoes until slightly charred, about 10 minutes. Remove skins; chop flesh roughly. Transfer to a pan; add halved garlic cloves, olive oil and salt: roast at 400 degrees F, until thickened and flecked with dark bits, about 1 hour. Serve drizzled with more olive oil and chopped ripe olives. Use as a dip with pita breads.

Thai Tomato Spring Rolls: Wrap a mixture of chopped tomatoes, mint, pork tenderloin, lemongrass and peanuts in wrappers. Serve with spicy soy dipping sauce.

Fried Pink Tomato Sandwiches: Sauté flour or cornmeal-dusted slices of pink tomatoes then place on rounds of polenta that have been seasoned with basil.

Little Tomato Goat Cheese Soufflés: Fill tomatoes with a basic soufflé mixture made with goat cheese and chives. Bake until puffy and golden brown.

Sounds great! I especially like the cornbread one...and the toast one! I love tomatoes and fresh onion grilled into my grilled cheese sandwiches!
