  1. Place the tomatoes, onion and crackers into a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, and mix thoroughly. Cover, and let stand for about 15 minutes. This will allow the crackers to soak up the juices from the tomato. The mixture should set up to be a stiff paste.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Form the tomato mixture into patties, and place in the hot oil. Fry the patties, flipping only once, until golden on both sides.

This was a hit with my family. I altered it a little to suit what I had on hand. I used crushed goldfish crackers instead of saltines. I will make it again.

Wow. That is the only word I have for this. WOW. I used diced Italian style tomatoes and these were great. I wound up throwing in the entire sleeve of saltines, as mine weren't pastey enough...

Holy cow...I simply cannot believe that so few ingredients can yield something so fabulous! I am teaching daughter to cook over summer break and this one was on her list. We were both so pleased...

Delicious! Crunchy on the outside, soft and creamy on the inside (or at least that's how mine came out). I used Hunt's Basil, Garlic, and Oregano Diced tomatoes, so I didn't bother adding salt ...

EXCELLENT! Who would of thought that tomato cakes would actually taste great. And not like eating a tomato raw, it is actually delicious. :-D

I've made these three times now- and have loved them each time. This is a great, light and fresh app or side with dinner. I have found the smaller you can cut the tomato and onion, the better. A...
