  • Whisk milk, cornmeal, flour, and egg together in a large bowl until it is a fairly thick batter.

  • Dip each slice of tomato into batter and immediately fry in hot oil until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Drain fried tomatoes in a colander standing on edge to keep crisp as you fry remaining tomato slices.

I made as written except that I was a little heavy handed on the cornmeal out of habit. I never really got a thick batter (could have been the extra cornmeal) but they sure came out tasty. Draining on paper plates lined with paper towels will absorb more grease and you will not lose your crispiness. Read More

I made this recipe exactly as written. I couldn't get the batter to adhere to the tomatoes. Otherwise good. Read More

This Southern tradition is a wonderful snack or side dish. However I added some seasonings to spice it up a bit. Read More
