Jennifer's StoryI had first tried Fried Green Tomatoes at a local restaurant. They were sliced almost paper thin and the breading wasn't great so I tried my own version which came out flavorful and great!
green tomatoes, sliced 1/4 inch thick
italian bread crumbs
panko bread crumbs
salt, to taste
oil, for frying
1Using a medium-sized skillet, fill about 1/4 with oil and let heat on medium-high heat.
2Meanwhile, set up breading station using a small to medium bowl for the eggs, one plate with Italian bread crumbs and another plate for the Panko crumbs. Salt tomato slices with salt (to taste) and dip into egg mixture then in Italian bread crumbs. Dip the tomato in the egg mixture once more and then into the Panko crumbs. Repeat until all tomato slices are breaded.
3Place three to four tomato slices into the oil and fry for 1 to 2 minutes and gently turn the tomatoes over using tongs. Allow to cook for 1 to 2 minutes longer or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm.
