Fried green tomatoes are about as southern as you can get, comfort food at its best. An air fryer will allow you to put a healthier, but still totally delicious, version on the table.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Season tomato slices with salt and pepper.

  • Set up a breading station in 3 shallow dishes: pour flour into the first dish; stir together buttermilk and eggs in the second dish; and mix breadcrumbs, cornmeal, garlic powder, and paprika together in the third dish.

  • Dredge tomato slices in flour, shaking off the excess. Dip tomatoes into the egg mixture, and then into the bread crumb mixture, making sure to coat both sides.

  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Brush the fryer basket with olive oil. Place breaded tomato slices in the fryer basket, making sure they do not touch each other; cook in batches if necessary. Brush the tops of tomatoes with olive oil.

  • Cook for 12 minutes, then flip the tomatoes and brush again with olive oil. Cook until crisp and golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes more. Remove tomatoes to a paper towel-lined rack to keep crisp. Repeat with remaining tomatoes.

Cook's Notes:

You can use an olive oil mister bottle, if preferred.

If you want to warm up all of the cooked tomato slices prior to serving, carefully stack all the tomatoes in the air fryer basket, and air-fry at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 to 2 minutes.

If you like a dipping sauce, ranch is a good choice, or we like Sriracha Mayo, a simple recipe on the Allrecipes site.

turned out really good, better than I expected. I used spray olive oil instead of brushing it on but it worked fine. Read More
