Very bland and proportions seem to be off. As written, the batter is nothing like pancake batter, but more like a thin soup and doesn't stick well. Not much flavor. Also I ended up with a ton of batter, more than enough for 10-15 tomatoes or more.
Tip to those looking to make FGT for the first time, the key is in the tomato. It should be the centerpiece of the dish. Many recipes suggest coating the tomato with so much batter that it ends up hiding the flavor of the tomato. If you're going to do that, you might as well use eggplant or zucchini. Choose tomatoes that are just on the verge of turning color, maybe even a tinge of pink beginning to show. If they are too "green", they won't have any flavor to them. Too ripe, and they will turn to mush.
