in the kitchen

my sunday routine usually consists of going to church in the morning then going to the farmer's market after wards to get my produce for the week. i picked up some pink lady's, my favorite apples in the world; a bushel of top cut carrots, and green tomatoes!!!

the green tomatoes sparked my fancy and i decided to make fried green tomatoes. this was a first for me. i've had them once before in the past and decided to give it a try. i didn't get this recipe from anywhere in particular i just kind of winged it.

so here's what i used:

1-2 sliced green tomatoes
bread crumbs
1 egg
1/2 milk
seasonings of your choice ( i used paprika and adobo seasoning)
olive oil

set up three stations for the flour, milk/eggs and bread crumbs. add oil to a  medium size pan, enough to coat the pan. season the sliced tomatoes with your desired seasonings. after the tomatoes are seasoned dip them in flour. dredge the tomato in egg/milk mixture then dip it into the bread crumbs. continue this process until all the tomatoes are coated with flour, milk, and bread crumbs. next place the coated tomatoes in the pan and let them cook 2-3 minutes on both sides. take the tomatoes out and place them on a paper towel to soak up any access oil. and viola you have fried green tomatoes.


  • i made a grilled chicken sandwich with advocado and munster cheese to go along with my tomatoes...for a recipe on the chicken sandwitch comment below or send me an email.
  • this recipe makes about 3-4 servings.
  • you can add you own seasonings to cater the recipe to your tastes...however, the tomato already has a great bold flavor and you want to be sure you don't take too much away from that.
