(Un)Fried Green Tomatoes

on June 16, 2014

Green tomatoes…baked, not fried!

Fun Fact: I recently learned that green tomatoes are simply unripe regular tomatoes. All this time I had thought that they were their own plant. You know, not tomatoes. GREEN tomatoes. Like tomatillos or something. Alright, that’s enough. Here’s how you make them.



2 Green Tomatoes
1 Large Egg
1/2 cup Parmesan or Provolone Cheese, grated
1/2 cup Bread Crumbs
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
Vegetable Oil or Cooking Spray


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray/vegetable oil.
Slice tomatoes into 1/4-1/8″ slices. Beat egg in a small bowl. In another bowl, mix cheese, bread crumbs, and spices. Dip tomato slices into egg, then into the breading mixture. Be sure to coat both sides.
Place slices on a baking sheet in a single layer. Spray tops with oil and bake about 30 minutes or until breading is crispy. I recommend flipping tomatoes halfway through. Serve plain, or with a dipping sauce of your choice!
