This is a great recipe for using all of those extra tomatoes from your garden. They are different than traditional fried tomatoes because of the spices used.

Ingredients Nutrition

  2. Mix flour, salt, cumin and pepper.
  3. Coat tomato slices with flour mixture.
  4. Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat until hot.
  5. Add tomato slices and fry, turning once, until golden brown and crispy.
  6. Serve with sour cream, if desired.

EXCELLENT! We put a little salt and hot sauce on the tomatoes after they were fried for extra zing. This is a great way to be able to eat winter tomatoes, too, because it adds a lot of flavor. Thanks, Karen!
