Who in America in their right mind doesn’t love fried green tomatoes?


– 2-3 Green tomatoes
– Panko breadcrumbs
– Salt
– Pepper
– Smoked paprika
– 1 1/2 Cup olive oil

The Prep:::::

Grab two bowls, one for your panko and the other for your eggs, which should be whisked well. I also added some seasonings to the eggs to ensure flavor.

Slice your tomatoes. Using a mandolin would be a better option for slicing to ensure uniform thickness. Once sliced, season to taste (I like mine a little salty) then set aside.

Add olive oil to a 12″ fry pan (allows for cooking more tomatoes) on medium high. Mindspill

The Jump Off:::::

Now that everything is set up, take some of  your tomato slices and dip them in your eggs, next dip them in the panko being sure to coat both sides, then place your breaded tomatoes in your hot oil.

Cook on each side for about 2 minutes or until golden.

Remove the cooked tomatoes from the oil and set them on paper towel for cooling and excess oil removal.


If you notice that your panko is getting yet, add more to the bowl. Mindspill

For fun, you can use just about anything for a condiment. I had every intention of making a basil/lime mayo but…. I saw that I had some blue cheese dressing and the rest is history.
