Fried Tomatoes


I don't know if I ever made fried tomatoes, having usually made a baked version. Tonight, though, I wanted something different. Something comforting. Something FRIED. This really fit the bill, and was delicious. It was much like the way my mom makes her fried tomatoes; I just need to figure out how she makes her sauce that goes along with them.

So, if you're looking for a great meal, this is it! Perfect for the summer!

Adapted from Simply Recipes.


3 medium, firm green tomatoes
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup milk
2 beaten eggs
2/3 cup fine dry bread crumbs or cornmeal
1/2t garlic powder
1/2t parsley
1T Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper


1 Cut unpeeled tomatoes into 1/2 inch slices. Sprinkle slices with salt and pepper. Let tomato slices stand for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, combine bread crumbs, garlic powder, parsley, and Parmesan. Place flour, milk, eggs, and bread crumb mixture in separate shallow dishes.

2 Heat 2 Tbsp of olive oil in a skillet on medium heat. Dip tomato slices in milk, then flour, then eggs, then bread crumb mixture. In the skillet, fry half of the coated tomato slices at a time, for 4-6 minutes on each side or until brown. As you cook the rest of the tomatoes, add olive oil as needed. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Goes great with mashed taters!
