Zesty Fried Green Tomatoes
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 25 min.
I’ve never like fried green tomatoes, but this recipe changed my mind! I think the keys are thin slices, cornmeal, Parmesan, and just enough oil to cook and brown, rather than deep frying. I did leave out the ginger, just because that sounded odd to me. I’ll definitely be making this again!
Excellent--I'm so glad I found the recipe for my first time making fried green tomatoes. The result was delicious and, like others who have commented, I will be using this breading recipe for other vegetables. I didn't use the pinch of red pepper flakes and used late-season tomatoes that, while not green, were not quite ripe enough to be enjoyed in the usual ways.
My first time making fried green tomatoes and I couldn't have tried a better recipe. I followed the recipe exactly and the tomatoes were juicy, tender and delicious with a wonderful slightly crunchy coating. The Parmesan cheese added a nice cheesy flavor. I'll be making this again for sure. 5 stars!!!
Everyone loves these! Will try with zucchini when our annual treat of green toms are gone.
This is a nice coating that stays in place, and easy to handle. I will be keeping this one. I also used it on sliced zuchinni
I had some late green tomatoes and this was the perfect recipe for them. The coating stayed on very well and they were very tasty!
No Green Tomatoes? No problem this one is fabulous with The Reds. They are super crunchy and so delicious. My tomatoes were on the Firmer side which made them perfect for this recipe. Great as a side or as a Base for White Country Gravy. A real Breakfast special. Now's the perfect time for this wonderful recipe.JanieTaste of home Volunteer Field Editor
My first ever fried green toatoes! Minor changes- instead of garlic salt, I used Roasted Granulated Garlic instead of the garlic salt. I sprinkled kosher salt on the tomatoes after they were fried. I made them into an amazing BLT with sourdough bread. Great recipe!
I prefer without the ingredients that make it zesty! I only include the garlic salt, not other 3 spices.
