One of my fave appetizers, side dishes, or snacks in the summer! Save those green tomatoes at the end of the summer & make use of them with this 15 minute recipe. You won't regret it, fried green tomatoes are so delicious & easy to make! 


Time: 15-20 mins depending how many you're making, this recipe serves 2-3 ppl


  • 2-3 large green tomatoes 
  • 1 cup all purpose flour  
  • 1 tablespoon fine sea salt  
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1 cup panko
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk (I used lactaid)  
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil 
  • 1 teaspoon grated asiago cheese as a garnish if desired


  1. Cut the tomatoes into even slices, you don't want them too thick or they'll be still raw on the inside when you fry them.  
  2. Heat the vegetable oil to medium heat in a frying pan.  
  3. Get 3 small bowls. Put the flour, salt & pepper in one bowl, the egg & milk (beaten) in another bowl, & the panko in the third bowl.  
  4. Dip the tomatoes one by one into the flour bowl first, then the egg mixture, then the panko.  
  5. Fry until golden brown on each side (about 2-3 mins) . 
  6. Drain on a paper towel then serve with your favorite dressing or spicy mayo!  
  7. Hint: I sprinkled the tops with freshly grated Asiago cheese to complete the taste & give it a fancy look!
