Fried Green Tomatoes (Perfect appetizer in the Summer)
This is the funnest and easiest recipe EVER! If you think you don't like tomatoes.. you are wrong! These are a taste of heaven. Below is the awesome easy recipe:
You will need: (serves 6 for an appetizer)
5 green tomatoes rinsed and sliced into 1/3 inch slices
1 cup flour
3 tbsp milk
1 cup vegetable oil
3 cups Panko Crumbs. (found in the Asian section of the grocery store)
Start by sprinkling a little salt and pepper on your tomatoes.
Get out three bowls. Place flour in the 1st, eggs and milk in the 2nd (mix the eggs and milk) and in the 3rd bowl the Panko. Preheat oil in a frying pan for a minute or two.
Place a tomato slice in the flour and lightly coat. Next place in egg mixture. Cover completely with egg. Next, coat in the panko crumbs and place on a plate. Once all the tomatoes have been coated, place 5 in the frying pan. Keep the heat to about med/high. You will know how hot is if the bottom is burning... hahaha Do not burn these.
You should keep the tomatoes on the 1st side for about a minute or two. Check if it is browning, and if so, flip over and fry the other side. Place on a paper towel to drain extra oil. Serve on a really pretty plate with a side of ranch or.... wait for it........................Yes hot sauce!
