  1. Wash and dry each tomato slice. Sprinkle cornmeal on a piece of wax paper or a large flat surface. Dip each tomato slice into the cornmeal and pat gently until cornmeal covers the surface; turn slice over and coat the other side.
  2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add tomato slices, and fry for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot.

Years ago, I would have given this a better rating. However, many years of cooking (and eating) in 5 Southern States has taught me that SELF rising Flour is better to use than meal. Also IF you must use meal, make it FRESH, home done FINELY crushed Saltine Cracker Meal. The best oil to fry them in is Peanut Oil as it has a higher burning point.



The cornmeal didn't stick well & had no taste. Better season well & dip in egg or milk before frying. I think I will stick to my ole standby of frying in Louisana seasoned fish fry. Thats the best.. Dredge in egg & then batter!



I dipped them in egg before the cornmeal, and when they were done we sprinkled them with grated fresh parm cheese.
