Notes

Only use green tomatoes—once they start to become ripe and turn pink they do not fry as well.

Ingredients

For the breadcrumbs

  • 3 Cups plain breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 Cup chopped parsley
  • 1/2 Cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic, pressed

For the fried green tomatoes

  • All-purpose flour, as needed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Cup of milk
  • 1 green tomato

Directions

For the breadcrumbs

Combine all of the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and process until blended, about 30 to 45 seconds. 

For the fried green tomatoes

Using 3 shallow bowls, fill one with the all-purpose flour, another with the egg wash, and another with the breadcrumbs.

Slice the tomato into ¼ inch thick slices. Dredge the slices in the flour, then the egg wash, and then lastly the breadcrumbs.

Fry the slices in a deep fryer or a large skillet, turning them over when one side is brown.
