Ingredients

  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs

  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup vegetable oil for frying, or as needed

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 large green tomatoes, cut into 1/4-inch slices

  • salt to taste

Directions

  1. Combine panko bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and black pepper together in a bowl. Beat eggs in a separate bowl. Pour flour into a third bowl.

  2. Pour in enough vegetable oil to measure 1/2-inch in a large skillet; add olive oil. Heat oil mixture to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  3. Dredge each tomato slice in egg; coat with flour. Dredge through egg again and press into panko mixture until evenly coated.

  4. Fry coated tomato slices in the hot oil until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove fried green tomatoes with a slotted spoon and transfer to a paper plate or paper towel-lined plate. Sprinkle with salt.
