LHM was right! DeeeeeVINE! I used large home grown tomatoes, fresh off the vine. The mustard and red pepper makes your tongue tingle and the touch of sugar and salt brings out all the fresh flavors! I was not sure what you meant by red peppers- crushed red pepper flakes?, fresh red bells? I used some crushed pepper flakes (and a dash of Sriracha hot sauce) LOVE the cornmeal crunch. I do not do pork so I used some turkey bacon that I fried up in a little veg oil til crispy. Then used those drippings. mmmm! I could not resist crumbling that crispy bacon and sprinkling it over the entire dish! This is a very easy yet amazingly tasty and impressive dish! Thank you so much for sharing!
