Fried Tomatoes


  • 6 fresh, ripe very firm tomatoes, I used Roma

  • 1 egg

  • 1 cup milk

  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/3 cup cornmeal

  • 1/3 cup bread crumbs

  • Canola oil

  • Taylor Homemade Sesame Herb blend


  1. Wash the tomatoes in cold water and dry them.

  2. Slice, horizontally, about 1/2 inch thick

  3. Beat the milk and egg lightly in a small bowl.

  4. Combine the flour, cornmeal, and bread crumbs in a deep dish.

  5. Dip the tomato slices in the egg, letting the excess run back into the bowl, then dredge them in the bread crumb mixture, coating both sides.

  6. Pour enough oil in a skillet to come up the side about 1/2 inch and heat to high.

  7. When the oil is very hot, place as many slices as will fit comfortably.

  8. When a golden crust forms on the bottom side, turn them and do the other side.

  9. Transfer with a slotted spatula to a paper towel lined plate.

  10. Repeat the process until all tomatoes are done.

  11. Sprinkle Sesame Herb Blend on top

  12. Serve warm.
