FRIED GREEN TOMATOES RECIPE
3 medium, firm green tomatoes
1/2 cup all-purpose unbleached flour
1/4 cup milk
2 beaten eggs
2/3 cup fine dry bread crumbs or cornmeal
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1. Cut unpeeled tomatoes into 1/2 inch slices.
Sprinkle slices with salt and pepper. Let tomato slices stand for 15
minutes. Meanwhile, place flour, milk, eggs, and bread crumbs in
separate shallow dishes.
2. Heat 2 Tbsp of olive oil in a skillet on medium
heat. Dip tomato slices in milk, then flour, then eggs, then bread
crumbs. In the skillet, fry half of the coated tomato slices at a time,
for 4-6 minutes on each side or until brown. As you cook the rest of the
tomatoes, add olive oil as needed. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
