Whenever I am lucky enough to get home from work at a decent time while the sun is still shining bright, I try to cook something. All that light and I just want to take pictures of food! I’m crazy I know.
So after getting home from work I wanted to whip up a quick recipe and thought what better than fried green tomatoes, seeing as I had several in my garage (which my lovely mother worked painstakingly hard to pick from her garden – Thanks mom!). I have never even had fried green tomatoes, but I have had green tomato relish and really enjoy that, so what couldn’t be delicious about fried green tomatoes? I definitely enjoyed these, they had a unique flavour and I really enjoyed the tartness along with the rich flavours from the breading. I really want to put these in my next sandwich!
I’m sure I will be trying several variations of these since they are so easy to make. Here are the steps and ingredients:
Fried Green Tomatoes
- 2 Large Tomatoes
- ¼ cup Panko Bread Crumbs
- ¼ cup flour
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp Parmesan
- 2-4 Pinches garlic salt
- 2 tbsp Canola oil per tomato
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- Slice the tomatoes
- Cover them in flour
- Soak in egg
- Cover in breading
- Pour 2 tbsp of canola in a pan
- Fry the tomato slices until crispy and brown
- EAT! (or take pictures if you have a food blog!)
Now after making the tomatoes, I also had cherry tomatoes which were not ripe yet, so I thought, how awesome would this be with cherry tomatoes? Well they were awesome. I topped each one with a little dollop of mayo and snacked away. These would make a very neat appetizer.
My first venture into green tomatoes will not be my last. I will definitely be making something else with these and hope you can too!
