  • ½ cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 4 medium green tomatoes, cut into ¼-inch slices
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Combine cornmeal, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Dredge tomato slices in cornmeal.
  3. Brush 1½ teaspoons oil over the bottom of a 12-inch cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet. Heat skillet over medium-high heat until very hot (see Tip).
  4. Add half the tomato slices to the skillet in a single layer and cook until browned on one side, about 3 minutes. Turn slices over and transfer skillet to oven. Bake tomatoes for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden and tender. Transfer to a platter and tent with foil to keep warm.
  5. Wipe out skillet and repeat with remaining 1½ teaspoons oil and remaining tomato slices. Serve hot.
  • If you have two ovenproof skillets, cook all the tomatoes at the same time.
