Fried Green Tomatoes

These are such a treat.  It is only once a year that I am able to time it such that I have green tomatoes and the time to cook them.  When the moons align and I am able to enjoy them I am a very happy camper.  I didn't have all the ingredients for this recipe, so I adjusted it when I fried these last night.

Fried Green Tomatoes

4 large green tomatoes
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup crushed corn flakes
1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
2 teaspoons coarse kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Heat 1/2 inch of oil over medium in large skillet.

Pull out three plates and put the following on each.
Plate 1 - flour
Plate 2 - milk and eggs whisked together
Plate 3 - flour, corn flakes, bread crumbs, salt and pepper

Cut tomatoes into 1/2 inch slices.  Dip them in plates 1-3.

Fry in oil until golden and then flip to other side.  Do not crowd the skillet.  Tomatoes should not be touching.  The 2nd side will cook faster, so watch it closely.

Remove from oil and dry on wrack or paper towels.

Since I have to purchase these when I can find them, and since they do not last long, I usually make more than I need.  This morning I poached an egg and served it on a fried green tomato with remoulade sauce.  Although this looks complicated, it was quite easy.  While my egg poached I combined the sauce ingredients in my food processor.  An easy summer treat!

Remoulade Sauce

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1/2 small onion
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup mayonaise
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon mustard
1 teaspoon cajun seasoning

Combine all in processor.

Thanks was quite a breakfast treat for me. Definitely, not my normal protein shake or oatmeal!
