These are appropriately named because they really were SIMPLE to make. No dipping in flour, then egg, and then in bread crumbs. Just right out of the ice water into the flour-cornmeal mixture and into the skillet. The tomatoes didn’t turn to mush, and they had a nice thin crust which stayed on well, not a heavy breading like many recipes have which often can interfere with the actual green tomato flavor. The only thing I did differently was to lightly sprinkle some sugar on the tomatoes instead of salt. This is always the way I’ve eaten them, and I think it works well with the tartness of the tomato. Enjoyed your recipe, thanks for sharing!

Wonderful! I think the ice water helped keep the tomatoes firm although the recipe didn't mention that. Awesome taste! I would have taken a picture but they were eaten too quickly.

So easy and quick! Used regular corn meal and it came out fine. Made Chef John's remoulade recipe (hot sauce, mayo, and relish) to go with it. Awesome!

Great recipe. Very simple and quick to make. I would recommend turning the heat up as using low heat causes some of the breading to dissolve into the pan. The cold water helps the breading adhere and there is no need to use eggs as in other recipes. These are delicious and took about 10 minutes to do all four tomatoes. My tomatoes were medium so I only used one cup of cornmeal and one cup of flour. Wonderful and will make again. I'm going to try with pickles next time!
