In one bowl add flour, in another combine cornmeal, panko, and Tony's. In a third bowl combine beaten egg and water. Set up an empty plate.
It's easiest to work in batches of 2. With your left hand, dredge 2 tomatoes through the flour and shake the excess off.
With your left hand, drop them into the egg mixture, stirring to coat.
Use your right hand and drop them into the cornmeal bowl and toss to coat. Place your breaded tomatoes onto a plate. Repeat.
Once you've finished breading all of them, spray the tops of the tomatoes with olive oil spray while they're still on the plate. Really coat them and then let them sit 2-3 minutes.
Spray the basket of the air fryer with olive oil and gently place the breaded tomatoes in the basket. Don't overcrowd the basket.
Cook for 6 minutes at 390 degrees F. Flip (easiest to use the tines of a fork). Spray the tops with additional olive oil spray if they need it.
Cook for an additional 2 minutes and then serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
Skillet Instructions: heat a cast-iron skillet over medium heat and add enough high-heat oil to cover the bottom. Fry tomatoes in batches, flipping halfway through. Remove using a slotted spoon and allow to rest on a plate lined with paper towels.If you use sodium-free seasoning, salt the breading to taste if desired.Special thanks to Miss Brenda and Kristina for guidance on this recipe.
