Lose the egg and use milk instead (better yet, buttermilk). Add more seasonings! There is no way 3 tablespoons will give you 1/4 inch of oil in the bottom of a large fry pan, and, as another reviewer mentioned, a good southener would never use olive oil for fried "t'maters". From a transplanted Alabamian...

my boyfriend was a cook in a really nice southern restaurant, and he dipped them in milk instead of egg and fries them in canola oil. I think they come out a lot better without the 'eggy' taste.

OMGOODNESS! I think the cornmeal adds a little crunch to this normally soggy side. I love them this way. This is always how I make fried green tomatoes. I use some salt and pepper, too. Try this: dip the tomato in egg then flour then egg then cornmeal. If desired, add the salt and pepper to the flour. YUMMMMMY!
