Crisp and tangy, fried green tomatoes are the ultimate Southern comfort food ..
These are one of my favorites. I LOVE Fried green tomatoes.. A southern classic. But this fried green tomato has a modern twist, Panko.
Panko is a japanese breadcrumb that gets really crispy when fried or baked. I absolutely love the crunchiness the panko gives to these tomatoes.
As a southern gal, my grandmother, who was a fabulous cook would be turning in her grave knowing I wasn’t using cornmeal. But I know she would change her mind with one bite…
Panko isn’t traditional.. but I would choose this way over the cornmeal or flour version any time.
“I don’t like fried green tomato” people like these.. and the people that do like fried green tomatoes say these are some of the best they have ever had. Give the panko a try and let me know what you think.
I personally fry mine in Olive oil because it’s so healthy. But feel free to use vegetable oil. Start with firm, tart green tomatoes.
SUPER SIMPLE RECIPE:
Green tomatoes + 3 ingredients – Flour, Egg, Panko
For a real treat… Try a fried green tomato in place of a regular tomato on a sandwich.. RIDICULOUSLY DELICIOUS!!!
