This recipe is incredibly easy and really tasty. We're healthy eaters, so frying tomatoes isn't the first thing that comes to mind. But you have got to taste these. Amazing! Disclosure: we used fresh tomatoes from our garden that were really flavorful. You may not get the same results with less flavorful tomatoes. We served with broiled salmon and rice, but these would go well with anything.

  1. Season the tomato slices with the lemon pepper and dill.
  2. Place the eggs and flour in 2 separate dishes. Dip each seasoned tomato slice in the egg to coat, then press in the flour, coating both sides.
  3. Heat two Tbsp olive oil in the skillet over medium-high heat. Place tomato slices in the skillet, and cook 4 minutes on each side, until lightly browned. Remove to a serving plate.
  4. Add more oil as needed and more slices of tomato for the next batch. Continue until all tomatoes have been cooked.

    These tomatoes are really fantastic. I was skeptical as I had not tasted fried tomatoes before these. But they are truly delicious and simple to make!

      This was excellent. My made these tomatoes a couple of days ago and topped the tomatoes with fresh grated Parmesan cheese when she flipped them and started to cook the second side.
      We had a few left over and I reheated them and put them under poached eggs....Great!

        The flavor was great. Be sure to use tomatoes that are not too ripe. One of mine was a ripe heirloom tomato that got too soft and fell apart. It tasted great but was hard to remove from the pan.
