I made Fried Green Tomatoes the other night and wow! Delicious. Here is the recipe I used:

Fried Green Tomatoes

2 green tomatoes, slices a ¼” thick (makes about 8 rounds)


3 eggs whisked
Breadcrumb mixture - Italian breadcrumbs mixed with Panko (Italian Style)
Garlic powder and dried basil
Vegetable oil

Heat about 2-3 inches of vegetable oil over medium high heat. Mix breadcrumbs with garlic and dried basil. Dredge tomato slices in flour, shaking off excess. Dip in egg mixture, and then breadcrumbs. Cook for about 3 minutes, then turn them over for their last minute. Tomatoes will float to the top when they are just about done.

Remove with slotted spoon, to a plate lined with paper towel. Sprinkle with salt and parmesan cheese immediately. Let cool 2 minutes.

I wanna thank Steph over at Live.Love.Eat., she found this recipe for me a while back.

Ok, now I am off for the bachelorette weekend. I will be back Sunday with a full report! Beach here I come!!!

Gerri, these were really good, and they were not at all mushy. You and your sister will love them.
