Easy Fried Green Tomatoes

I am in love with the Easy Fried Green Tomatoes. I am making this for time to come.

Easy Fried Green Tomatoes
So here it is, finally after being on my back porch for over 2 weeks Easy Fried Green Tomatoes. These are the left overs tomatoes from this year that did not get to make it.

I have never made fried green tomatoes before, a little bit messy but worth the work. Though I do not like to fry things much I thought to give this a try since my husband also likes them, he is from the south and there they like their fried food :-)

Anyhow, I know many versions use milk, buttermilk, corn flour, flour etc but I just wanted to keep it simple. I pretty much wanted to enjoy the tomato rather than the coating so I only used eggs and panko, my favorite. I never use bread crumbs anymore because even the plain ones contain the lovely hydrogenated oil, aka trans fats, among other unhealthy crap.


Here you can see that I first dipped them into the eggs and finally in the panko before frying! A bit messy :-)

       They were pretty good I must say, specially with a little bit of sweet and sour chili sauce :-)

Miryam's original recipe

Yield: 4 servings

Total Time: 25 minutes


2 lbs of green tomatoes, sliced 1/4 inch thick approximately.
2 organic eggs, beaten
2-3 cups of panko crumbs, maybe a tad more
1 tsp celtic of salt
Pinch of pepper
Olive oil for frying



In a medium mixing bowl place the beaten eggs. In another bowl place the panko crumbs with the salt and pepper. These is your assembly line.

Pour enough oil in a frying pan to coat the bottom. Heat over medium heat. Using your assembly line - eggs, and panko, dip the tomatoes in the egg mixture, and then into the panko. Shake off any excess.

Sprinkle a couple of bread crumbs into the oil, if it sizzles it’s ready. Fry the tomatoes until light golden brown on each side. About 2 minutes per side.

Transfer them onto a plate, previously covered with paper towels, and fry all the tomato slices. Served while still warm.
