Directions

  1. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.
  2. Beat eggs and water in a shallow bowl. Place flour and cornmeal in 2 separate shallow bowls. Season cornmeal with salt and pepper.
  3. Dip each tomato slice into flour, then dip into egg mixture. Press tomato into cornmeal mixture, shaking off excess. Transfer tomato to prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining tomato slices, arranging tomatoes in a single layer.
  4. Heat about 1/4 inch canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat until oil begins to shimmer. Fry tomatoes in batches until golden and crisp, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Drain on paper towel-lined plates. Repeat with remaining tomatoes.

This Carolina Girl LOVED it! Add a dash of salt as soon as they come out of the pan!

Easy, tangy, and tasty. Make sure you slice your tomatoes thin, so they cook through and through. I would make these again.
