Fried green tomatoes is definitely a southern thing. We love them and our Mom has been making these for us forever. They are good for a side dish, an appetizer or in a sandwich. We love to make a BLT and substitute red tomatoes for fried green tomatoes. We also like to add avocada. To make it even better slap some dill mayo (recipe follows) on it and you got one good sandwich. YUM YUM! My mouth is watering. I hope you enjoy!

Fried Green Tomatoes


Vegetable oil for frying

¾ cup all purpose flour

2 tablespoons milk

2 eggs

3 tablespoons Slap Ya Mama (Cajun seasoning)

2 cups Japanese bread crumbs (panko)

¼ cup parmesan cheese

4 – 5 medium green tomatoes

Kosher salt


In a large, deep, heavy pan, heat the oil to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, whisk the egg and the milk together, making an egg wash. Slice the tomatoes into ½ -inch slices and lay on paper towels to dry and sprinkle with kosher salt. Sprinkle tomatoes with ½ teaspoon of Cajun seasoning. Add parmesan cheese to panko crumbs. Dip the tomato slices into the flour, then egg wash and then panko parmesan cheese mixture on both sides. Carefully add to the hot oil and fry in the oil until golden brown, about 3 to 5 minutes. Serve hot and with dill mayo.
