FRIED GREEN TOMATOES WITH TWO DIPPING SAUCES

 FRIED GREEN TOMATOES WITH TWO DIPPING SAUCES

 

4 large green tomatoes, cut into ½” thick slices

½ cup of flour

2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. black pepper

½ cup buttermilk

1 large egg

½ cup panko breadcrumbs

¾ cup cornmeal

4 Tbs. butter

4 Tbs. olive oil 

Sea salt

 

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

 

Create a breading station. Combine the flour, salt and pepper in a pie plate or shallow baking dish.  Then beat the egg with buttermilk in another dish and, in a third dish, combine the panko and cornmeal.

 

Preheat the butter and olive oil in a large deep skillet over medium high heat.  Working in batches, dredge each tomato slice in the flour, shaking off excess.  Then dip in the egg mixture followed by pressing into the panko and cornmeal until well coated.  Place in the hot oil and cook about 3-4 minutes per side until golden brown and tender. Place on a cookie sheet lined with paper towels.  Season immediately with the sea salt and place in the oven to keep warm while you fry the rest of the tomatoes.

 

Serve hot with dipping sauces on the side.
