This recipe has been passed down to me from my southern family and I have altered it a bit to make it my own. My family loves these in the summer!

  3. Beat eggs and water together.
  4. Add oil to frying pan to medium heat.
  5. Coat tomatoes with egg wash.
  6. Then coat in flour and spice mixture.

  9. Salt immediately.
  10. Serve with any southern dinner or on their own. Great snack.
