A great way to use all those ripe tomatoes from your garden!
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil for frying
- 4 ripe tomatoes, sliced
- seasoning salt to taste
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour for coating
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 cup half-and-half cream
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
In a large skillet heat oil over medium heat. Sprinkle seasoning salt on both sides of tomato slices, then dredge in the 1/2 cup of flour. Place tomatoes in the hot oil and fry until golden brown, turning once. Keep tomatoes warm.
Add the 2 tablespoons of flour to the oil and cook over medium heat, stirring until smooth, about one minute. Gradually pour in the half and half, stirring constantly until thickened. Stir in the brown sugar, salt and pepper. Spoon gravy over the tomato slices and serve immediately.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
