Fried Green Tomato Parmesan


Rather than the traditional eggplant Parmesan, I found that using fried green tomatoes gives a better flavor and texture!

Total Time:
1 hrs 10 mins
1 9x13-inch baking dish


  • 2 eggs

  • 4 cups Italian seasoned bread crumbs

  • 10 green tomatoes, sliced 1/2-inch thick

  • 6 cups spaghetti sauce, divided

  • 1 (16 ounce) package shredded mozzarella cheese, divided

  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided

  • ½ teaspoon dried basil


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Whisk eggs in a small bowl until smooth. Pour bread crumbs into a shallow dish. Dip each tomato slice in egg and coat with bread crumbs. Arrange on baking sheets in a single layer.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden, about 5 minutes per side.

  4. Pour 3 cups spaghetti sauce into the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish. Top with a layer of tomato slices. Layer half of the mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese on top. Repeat layers with remaining spaghetti sauce, tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle basil on top.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 35 minutes.
