These were very easy to make and very good, too! I scaled the recipe back and just did 2 tomatoes. I used tomatoes that were just starting to turn red instead of all green tomatoes(based on my Grandma's suggestion), and they turned out just fine-they were still firm enough. I also used Italian breadcrumbs, because that's what I had on hand and I used olive oil for frying. I loved the breading-I'll probably have to mimic this on other things as well as the tomatoes! Thanks for posting, Vince!
