      Terrific, great, fantastic!!!! I used a mixture butter and peanut oil, as needed, in the pan to fry the slices. The lemon pepper was wondeful with the green tomato, great combination. I also liked using the addition of flour with the cornmeal. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

      I picked this recipe because it had all the ingredients I normally have on hand. No buttermilk. Simple and delicious. I have made it a couple of times already. Sorry the review was late. Will probably make it a couple of more times before the tomatoes are gone for the year!

      These were very good. I actually was out of lemon pepper, so I substituted Everyday Seasoning. I was struggling to have enough cornflour/flour coating stay on the tomatoes until I read the review stating to coat, then dip in egg, then coat again. Those turned out wonderful!
