We grow several types of tomatoes in our yard every summer and it is quite a project to find uses for all of them.  Here are a few ideas.

Catsup If you have lots of tomatoes and are ambitious, this is a project worth doing. 
Most commercial catsup has a bunch of preservatives and high fructose corn syrup. 
Just transfer it to an old catsup bottle or plastic squeeze bottle to serve.

Cauliflower Stuffed Tomatoes  A nice winter side dish and a unique use for
cauliflower as well as tomatoes.

Cherry Tomato Appetizer   This is adapted from a recipe by the Frugal Gourmet. 
It is strictly for adults, kind of a bloody Mary on a toothpick.

Classic Tomato and Mozzarella Salad  This is an easy and delicious way to serve
fresh, ripe tomatoes.

Corn Stuffed Tomatoes     A simple side dish that goes well with barbecue.

Feta Cherry Tomato Crisp  A nice appetizer for people who want to have something
with a lot of flavor, but not a lot of calories.

Fried Green Tomatoes   A classic southern recipe that goes great with fried chicken.

Quick Tomato Strawberry Spread  I thought this sounded awful, but it is wonderful.  A
great use for extra tomatoes.  Also on this page is a variation that uses green tomatoes
and raspberry Jell-O. 

Shrimp and Orzo Stuffed Tomatoes A great side dish for barbecue or a light lunch with
some bread.

Stuffed Mozzarella Caprese  The coolest way to use fresh tomatoes.  Looks very
difficult, but is simple. 

Tomato Pie  Creamy and cheesy, this is a nice side dish or could be a full meal
with a nice salad.

Tomato Sandwich Italiano  This sandwich is perfect for those fresh garden tomatoes.

Tomatoes with Grapes  An odd combination, but it works.  A bit of a different way
to use up some green tomatoes.

Turkish Green Tomato Salad  Simple warm salad with a feta garnish, nice for
when you just have some green tomatoes to use up.
