Anyone who wants a great "fried" green tomato recipe that will not cover the flavor and tang of the tomatoes AND will not clog your arteries, this is it! I used the basic recipe and tweaked it to my taste--no dill, but did use pepper, salt, garlic powder and onion powder in the cornmeal, then shook just a touch of Parmesean on top of each tomato slice after placing them on the pan and giving them a quick spray of canola oil ... I thought they were divine! Read More

I am a huge fan of "fried" green tomatoes but wanted to try a lower fat version. These tomatoes were very bland. Was unhappy with the flavor. Read More

I used a half and half mix of Italian bread crumbs and corn meal and added half a cap full of Mrs Dash seasoning to the coating and baked it on a baking stone coated w/ a little olive oil they turned out great. Read More

A good variation on this recipe is adding dried ranch seasoning to the cornmeal mixture- it adds a bit more flavor. It's good! Read More

These are a great alternative to fried green tomatoes. I followed the recipe exactly but after 45 minutes the cornmeal on the underside was still raw and "dusty". I flipped them over sprinkled with additional oil and put them under the broiler. Some serving suggestions: use them on a sandwich instead of ripe tomatoes or stack them with chevre between slices and top with roasted red pepper aioli. Less messy awesome. Read More

I was eager to try this after enjoying fried green tomatoes but wishing they were less greasy. There is nothing in this recipe to make the coating crispy when baked. It makes a warm tomato with warm cornmeal. Read More

After reading other reviews I added quite a bit more spice (cayenne lots of seasoned salt pepper garlic and onion powders)to the cornmeal. I also cut the tomatoes very thin and dipped them in egg before the cornmeal. I sprayed the cookie sheet and the tops of the tomatoes with Pam before baking and flipped them once during cooking. They came out very flavorful and crisp. I actually fried some of the ones I made to compare and the baked ones are better! They are crisper and way less greasy tasting. Read More

I am always searching for lowfat alternatives to my favorites. I have lost over 25 lbs by doing this. These were a little bland compared to the fried in butter kind - but when trying to remain healthy - i've learned to mix and match lower fat options. These needed a little more spice and that's it. Thanks for the recipie... Read More
