This Carolina Girl LOVED it! Add a dash of salt as soon as they come out of the pan!
My mom and grandmother used to make these.They were very good.I made them for my husband who had never tried them.He thought they were different but very good.
Easy, tangy, and tasty. Make sure you slice your tomatoes thin, so they cook through and through. I would make these again.
2 cups of cornmeal to the 1 cup of flour if you want that "gritty" the Southerns go for. Everyone prefers them differently though. I am from Missouri and so were my grandma's. One did them 2 parts flour to one part cornmeal and the other did 2 parts cornmeal to one part flour so it is just a matter of personal preference I suppose. Either way, the one thing I recommend is lightly salting them right out of the fryer and eat them while they are hot.
