Pat dry your roasted red peppers well and add them to a food processor, along with your mayo, basil leaves and salt. Puree for 15 seconds and pour into a small bowl. Chill until ready to use.
Slice your tomatoes into ¼" to ½" thick slices and season both sides well with salt and pepper.
Set up your dredging station.Add your flour to a shallow bowl. Whisk your eggs in another shallow bowl. Add your breadcrumbs, corn meal, parm cheese, garlic and onion powder to another shallow bowl and mix together. You should have 3 bowls set up.
Add enough oil to a skillet or pot and heat to 350°F.
While waiting for your oil to get hot, dredge each tomato slice in the flour, followed by the eggs and lastly, in the breadcrumb cornmeal mixture. Make sure to coat all sides well.
When your oil is hot, fry your tomatoes for about 1-2 minutes on each side. You are just looking for a golden brown color on the outside.
Allow your fried tomatoes to cool on a wire rack or paper towels so they stay crispy. Serve warm with aioli sauce on the side for dipping.
Yield: about 8 fried tomatoes (depending on the size of your tomatoes)*I used about 1 small red pepper from a jar.You can add garlic or onion powder to your aioli if you wish!
