    Favorite Family Recipes | Summer 2013 Out Here Magazine

    Ask nearly anybody what their favorite garden vegetable is, and you'll likely get "tomato" as the answer. Even if fresh-food aficionados don't have room or time for a full garden, chances are they'll grow a tomato plant or two.

    Some say a homegrown tomato tastes best when it's sliced and lightly salted, and we can't disagree with that. But if you use freshly picked tomatoes in these recipes from Out Here readers, you'll have some mighty tasty dishes for your table.

    Sautéed Fresh


    "This is the way we enjoy our freshly picked Roma tomatoes," writes Deb Plante, of Midland, Mich. "We also add other fresh veggies to it for variety, such as 2- to 3-inch zucchini and yellow squash cut lengthwise."

    Cut Small Golden Jubilee and Gala tomatoes in half and add them to the Romas and squash for a nice vegetable dish, she says. Add your own favorites to make it even better.

    Spaghetti Sauce in Bulk


    Annette Whistler, of Mifflintown, Pa., remembers the days when members of her extended family gathered to make and preserve some 300 quarts — yes, you read that correctly — of spaghetti sauce each year.

    "It's been a family recipe that we've used forever," she says. "Every year when my grandmother was still living, we would do it together because she had a humungous kitchen."

    Everything was stored at Grandma's spacious home, as well, she says. "When you needed spaghetti sauce, you just went to Grandma's and got it."

    BLT Roma Boats


    "I always have an abundance of garden-ripe tomatoes from June to September and while I do can some for winter use, there is nothing like the flavor of a fresh picked ripe tomato," writes Jaci Hammer, of Dandridge, Tenn."

    Froggy Burger


    Adam Pogue, of Jackson, Tenn., known as "Froggy" to his friends, has created a hamburger that's so popular among his friends that they've given it a name: The Froggy Burger.

    "It's one that everybody comes back to. It's a hot burger and really spicy," he says. "Everybody loves it."
