  • 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).

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

  • 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.

We've made this twice recently. I have to admit our flavor palette is not Southern but we do love southern dishes with a Canadian flair. Personally I do not care for cornmeal so when a traditional recipe like this called for breadcrumbs and parmesan I had to try it. I also object to deep frying for health reasons. So I pan fried these in a non-stick pan with a bit of Pam and they turned out fabulous. That was why we had them twice! And the second time I inadvertently used a tablespoon of garlic powder vs a teaspoon. DH says I can double that again next time. Read More

I am not a big corn meal fan so this was perfect for me. Living in PA I'm not all that familiar with green tomatoes. But it was in our portion this week from the CSA and I had to give it a try. Very good! Read More

Made the tomatoes last night. Used coconut flour because I am eating very little wheat. Will make these again when tomatoes are in season again. Read More

So simple. I love it! To make this low glycemic my substitutions were coconut flour for the wheat flour & Ian s Italian style gluten free Panko. I also used organic virgin coconut oil in place of olive oil. Delish! Read More

Could use a bit more flavor. Also, I only needed half of the panko and oil called for - as one who watches calorie count, this is significant! Read More
