With the fresh tomato season coming to an end, I had a surplus of green tomatoes that hadn’t quite ripened yet. I decided that it was better to use them then let them go to waste, so here we are making fried green tomatoes.
- 4-6 Green Tomatoes, sliced
- 1/2 Cup Bread Crumbs
- 1/2 Cup Corn Meal
- 2 Eggs
- 3/4 Cup Milk
- Vegetable Oil
- 1 TBSP Paprika
- 1 TBSP Garlic Powder
- Salt + Pepper
- Goat Cheese
Let’s Get Cooking
Grab your large frying pan and pour in a thin layer of vegetable oil, just enough to cover the tomato slices.
Season the tomato slices with salt + pepper
Whisk together eggs + milk in a small bowl. On a small plate combine bread crumbs + corn meal+ paprika + garlic powder + salt + pepper and mix.
Take the sliced tomato and coat in bread crumbs, then egg wash, then bread crumbs again. Repeat this process with the rest of the tomatoes.
Place the breaded tomatoes into the hot oil. Cook about 3-5 min each side, or until browned. Remove from oil and place on paper towels.
Once done, stack the tomatoes with goat cheese in between layers. Serve with your fav marinara sauce or as is!
