Lovely recipe, I served the tomatoes for brunch with Low Fat Chinese Omelet, nice combination. I would advise others trying this recipe follow the instructions carefully. Have the oil HOT and only cook for 2 minutes each side. They come out golden and oh so good. This was a nice change I usually stir fry the tomatoes with onions, Thanks Charlotte 3 for a keeper.

These were great! Next time I would add a little cayenne for zip, but they had plenty of flavor (using bacon grease makes all the difference). I even ate them the next morning straight from the fridge!!

I added 1/4 cayenne to the flour/cornmeal and fried them up in peanut oil. They were a perfect match for the cold beers we enjoyed out in the garden.
