Panko Fried Green Tomatoes Recipe

Panko bread crumbs have a coarser texture than ordinary bread crumbs, which you can also use to coat the tomatoes. However, the panko crumbs will give them a uniquely light and crispy texture. —Jacquelynne Stine, Las Vegas, Nevada
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 25 min. YIELD:10 servings


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups panko (Japanese) bread crumbs
  • 5 medium green tomatoes, cut into 1/4-inch slices
