I love tomatoes, and anything fried. If you have excess tomatoes, and you like fried, try these. Everything comes together quickly. The next time I have good firm, not overly ripe tomatoes, I am going to experiment with trying to bake, so not so many calories. Perhaps spraying broiling pan with cooking spray, would broiling work, or would tomatoes get too brown too quickly. Could still try baking. Anyway, frying is fantastic. Enjoy!!
