Fried Red Tomatoes with Gravy Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2014
My grandmom made this for years, then my mom and now me! The only 2 changes I make is no brown sugar and add a little spicy brown mustard to the sauce for a great tang! Yummy with a ham slice and corn fritters.

I saute'd a sliced onion in oil first,then placed in same pan with saute'd tomatoes. I breaded tomatoes with Italian bread crumbs before frying and mixed 2 T cornstarch to half and half before adding to skillet after removing tomatoes. Very substantial dish and a good way to use tomatoes that are ripe

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

The flavor was good, but the tomatoes turned out mushy. I think I'll try this again with fresh, slightly green garden tomatoes this summer.

This was a very strange side dish. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good. It was also very sweet. Different, but I won't be making it again.

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 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.
