Anyone who wants a great "fried" green tomato recipe that will not cover the flavor and tang of the tomatoes AND will not clog your arteries, this is it! I used the basic recipe and tweaked it to my taste--no dill, but did use pepper, salt, garlic powder and onion powder in the cornmeal, then shook just a touch of Parmesean on top of each tomato slice after placing them on the pan and giving them a quick spray of canola oil ... I thought they were divine!

I am a huge fan of "fried" green tomatoes, but wanted to try a lower fat version. These tomatoes were very bland. Was unhappy with the flavor.

I used a half and half mix of Italian bread crumbs and corn meal, and added half a cap full of Mrs Dash seasoning to the coating and baked it on a baking stone coated w/ a little olive oil ,they turned out great.

A good variation on this recipe is adding dried ranch seasoning to the cornmeal mixture- it adds a bit more flavor. It's good!

These are a great alternative to fried green tomatoes. I followed the recipe exactly but after 45 minutes, the cornmeal on the underside was still raw and "dusty". I flipped them over, sprinkled with additional oil, and put them under the broiler. Some serving suggestions: use them on a sandwich instead of ripe tomatoes or stack them with chevre between slices and top with roasted red pepper aioli. Less messy, awesome.

I was eager to try this after enjoying fried green tomatoes, but wishing they were less greasy. There is nothing in this recipe to make the coating crispy when baked. It makes a warm tomato with warm cornmeal.

This recipe was very bland. I even added more herbs/garlic powder to the cornmeal. Hope this is helpful.

I am always searching for lowfat alternatives to my favorites. I have lost over 25 lbs by doing this. These were a little bland compared to the fried in butter kind - but when trying to remain healthy - i've learned to mix and match lower fat options. These needed a little more spice and that's it. Thanks for the recipie...
