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.

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.

Best green tomato recipe I've made. Even my mil who is not fond of fried tomatoes enjoyed this northern style recipe.

floured and refrigerated tomatoes for an hour, then started this recipe, it made a big difference, all ways do that first. This recipe worked well, I will use it again. I guess us Yankees need to stick together.
