  1. Wash and dry each tomato slice. Sprinkle cornmeal on a piece of wax paper or a large flat surface. Dip each tomato slice into the cornmeal and pat gently until cornmeal covers the surface; turn slice over and coat the other side.
  2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add tomato slices, and fry for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot.

I fried the first slice according to the recipe and ended up adding a little flour to the cornmeal, garlic salt, onion powder, cayenne, then dipped in cornmeal mixture, then in an egg wash, and ...

Ohhhhh...yum! This is my favorite summer splurge! Made these tonight and they are absolutely delicious. The cornmeal is the secret here. I add paprika and s & P to the meal for color and fla...
