Lovely recipe - might make the rub doubled next time to use as a dip too - will make again, but Fried Green 'Maters will always have my heart! PAC orphanage 2009
I liked these alot, but my boyfriend did not care of them..
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!
Delicious! Made exactly as written except for frying in the bacon drippings and had to use groundnut oil. Nice crispy crust great flavor...a keeper!
I can only agree with the first two reviewers- these are delicious! I didn't have any bacon drippings around so I used olive oil (can't wait to try them with the bacon drippings as recommended). Easy, different, a winner! Thanks for posting.
DIVINE, absolutely divine! I just polished off a plateful of these for dinner using some ripe garden tomatoes. The seasoning is perfect and even though I don't usually cook with bacon drippings, I highly suggest splurging here. The cornmeal and bacon drippings leave a nice crisp crust, with a perfectly seasoned juicy sweet thick slice of tomato inside. Did I mention these were DIVINE??? Thanks, Dreamgoddess, you've just given me another reason to look forward to tomato season every year!!!
OMG, these are so delicious. I made half of the recipe for the 2 of us and should have made the whole recipe. I didn't chill the tomatoes as i forgot to and they worked great with chilling. Love the flavor of the Dijon mustard and worcestershire sauce. They are easy to make and I will be making them a lot this summer when we have fresh tomatoes in the garden. Thank you so very much for a delicious recipe.
