i would use olive oil before butter because butter will scorch too quickly.The oil needs to be hot to get the tomatoes crispy, these cook quick. I really need to grow tomatoes this year, the prices are getting crazy!

I thought olive oil lost some thing if ya use it to fry I'll have to look it up. I'm probably off on that though. I'll give olive oil a try.

Olive oil has a lower flash point Phil you are correct , but it will work for the tomatoes.You maintain that nice italian flavor.Try them with the sliced fresh mozzerella its really good!
Doug said to tell you extra virgin will give you a stronger olive oil taste than light olive oil.
