I made this for lunch one day, and I did modify it a bit, based on personal taste preferences. First of all, I double-dipped the tomato slices...flour, egg wash (1 egg, w/some milk), and then flour again. It created more of a crunchy texture which I really love. For the gravy, I only added about a teaspoon of brown sugar, because 2 Tbsp. seems like an awful lot. I guess it's a matter of taste, but I liked it with less sugar. But, it turned out very good, and I will make it again!

I have cooked these tomatoes for years! My great grandmom,did it and then my g mom and my mom, now me! I do them a little different, more italian taste, no sugar...garlic, onion, salt! My grandmom, always said the key was to get the first batch really dark...makes all the difference in the world! yumm


I remembered fried red tomatoes and gravy that my mom used to make and was excited to see this recipe. It wasn't quite what I remembered. The brown sugar made the gravy way too sweet.
