Green heirloom tomatoes 

WordPress, my blog hosting site, is experiencing some technical difficulties, which in turn are creating some serious problems here on SFTF.  While I have a mini heart attack that more than 90 recipe posts have gone missing, please bear with me until the WordPress support staff finds out where they went.  In the meantime, here’s a very quick post to get keep the content rolling with a twist on a classic that even inspired Hollywood.

Slices of green tomato

Breading the tomatoes

Frying the tomatoes

Green Fried Tomatoes

3 large green heirloom tomatoes
2 c. panko bread crumbs
1 t. salt
1/2 t. freshly ground black pepper
1/4 t. cayenne pepper
1 egg
1/4 c. milk
3 T. butter, olive oil, or the more traditional bacon grease

Slice tomatoes into 1/2 inch thick rounds.  Beat egg and milk together in a shallow bowl.  In another shallow bowl, lightly crush panko bread crumbs and mix with seasonings. 

Heat butter, oil or grease in large heavy skillet over medium high heat.  Let it get hot while you bread the tomatoes by first dipping in egg wash and then dredging in bread crumbs.  Place in hot skillet and fry on each side until golden brown, about 4 minutes on each side. 

Serve immediately with a couple slices of real or soy bacon on the side or together in a sandwich. 

(serves 3-4)

    oh noo! I really hope you can get your missing posts recovered. I use a plugin on my wordpress blog to send me backups every night. Its scary to think every thing could go missing!

    Andy – everything seems to be back in order, although I was certainly more than a little worried last night. I need to get a similar plugin to yours to avoid potential disaster in the future.
