Mmmmm...batter-dipped, crispy, fried green tomatoes. Very good with a side of blue cheese dressing!

Instructions Checklist
  • Put tomato slices in a colander to drain excess liquid. Discard end slices of tomatoes.

  • Whisk milk and egg together in a bowl. Stir flour, cornmeal, panko, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper, and cayenne pepper together in a separate bowl.

  • Gently press a tomato slice into the flour mixture to coat and shake to remove excess flour. Dip into the beaten egg, then press again into the flour mixture. Keep breaded tomatoes on a plate while breading the rest; do not stack.

  • Pour enough olive oil into a large skillet to reach about 1/2 inch deep. Place skillet over medium heat and heat oil until hot but not smoking. Cook 4 to 5 tomato slices at a time in the hot oil until browned on the bottom, 2 to 3 minutes; turn tomatoes and continue cooking until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes more. Reheat oil between batches, adding more oil as needed to maintain 1/2-inch depth.

This is more or less how I've always made them all through the years minus the panko and I've gotta say that the panko was a HUGE bonus. It brought the crispness to a whole new level. Loved it! Looks like I need to re-think the way I have always breaded my tomatoes with next years crop. My tip to you is that you should really invest in a fry daddy if you plan on deep frying anything. Not only do they save time but they save a ton of money in the long run. Read More
