Wash tomatoes under cold running water. Core tomatoes by removing the stem with a paring knife. Do not remove the skin. Slice into 1/2 inch slices.

What you need:

- Flour
- 1 Stick of real butter
- Plump, ripe tomatoes
- Salt and Pepper, optional
- Additional seasonings as desired
- Mayo and/or ranch dressing, optional

Distribute slices of butter in frying pan. Preheat pan to low/medium, melting butter. Be careful not to burn butter.


Dip both sides of tomato into flour and place in frying pan.
Season with salt and pepper. Turn when tomatoes have turned a golden brown. Remove and place on paper towel to remove excess butter. Serve with mayo or ranch dressing if desired.
