How to make it

- Dredge the tomato slices in the flour/cornmeal/bread crumbs/white pepper mixture, then coat them in the egg, letting any excess drip back into the bowl.
- Coat in the bread crumbs, pressing to help them adhere.
- In a large nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil until shimmering.
- Add the breaded tomatoes in a single layer and cook them over moderately high heat, turning once, until deeply golden and crisp, 5 to 6 minutes.
- Transfer the tomato slices to paper towel—lined plates.
- Sprinkle with salt and serve immediately with Crème fraîche drizzle and a basil sprig, nice with a few of the basil flowers and tender leaves.
- Variations: Instead of white pepper use Old Bay Seasoning.

Are these "Green Tomatoes" or unripened Red tomatoes.
I Grow Green Tomatoes that are still green when ripe.
