Do you like Fried Green Tomatoes? I do, both the film and the food. I stumbled upon some of the last green tomatoes of the season at the farmer's market and decided it was time to try and make my own. Be warned, I tried to be healthy and so they aren't quite the same greasy, fried tomatoes you may be used to, but they're delicious!
What you'll need:
- An oven pre-heated to 350
- 3 green tomatoes, sliced
- 1 egg and 1 cup milk whisked together (you can also use buttermilk for some tang)
- 2 cups cornmeal seasoned with salt, pepper, and cayenne to taste.
- Cooking spray or an oil mister to grease the sheets and spray a fine sheen over the top
Dip the tomatoes in the egg/milk mixture and then coat in the cornmeal. Place them on a greased cookie sheet (I ended up with 2 full sheets). Place the tomatoes in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes and then flip them once the bottom begins to brown and bake for another 15-20 minutes.
Enjoy and TOWANDA!
