I've blended many reviewer suggestions for fried green tomatoes with an ingredient my elderly ex mother-in-law suggested. The result is a sweet, hot combination that delights fried green tomato lovers. Serve with ranch or blue cheese dressing as dip.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup hot sauce

  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1 dash grill seasoning

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • ½ cup milk

  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs, or as needed

  • 2 green tomatoes, sliced

Directions

  1. Put hot sauce in small dish for dipping. Mix flour, brown sugar, grill seasoning, salt, and pepper in a separate small dish. Beat eggs into milk in a third dish. Pour panko in a fourth shallow dish. Arrange dishes in a line, respectively.

  2. Dip one side of each tomato slice in hot sauce. Press each side of tomato into flour mixture to coat; dip into milk mixture. Gently press tomato slices into panko to coat. Arrange coated tomatoes on a baking sheet. Refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes.

  4. Fry tomato slices in hot oil until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
