  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano

Toss cornmeal and parmesan cheese together in a shallow bowl.

Sprinkle in the garlic salt, oregano, ginger and red pepper. Blend well.

In a separate bowl, beat eggs lightly with a fork.

Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat.

Pat tomato slices dry, then dip in the egg.
