Green tomatoes add some crunch and a little zing to your meal. Try this method for making them, so much easier than frying them and they taste even better than fried.
4 large firm green tomatoes
1 1/2 cups of Panko bread crumbs (or make your own bread crumbs)
If using unseasoned bread crumbs you will need salt, pepper and seasoning of choice.
1 egg beaten
Olive oil to drizzle over tomatoes
How to make them:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Wash and cut off the stem of the tomatoes.
Slice your tomatoes about 1/8″ thick.
Dip each tomato slice into your egg and then into your bowl of Panko bread crumbs.
Coat both sides.
(If you are using bread crumbs that are not seasoned mix salt, pepper and seasoning of choice in these crumbs before dipping the tomatoes in them). Italian herbs are really good on them.
Place your coated tomatoes onto a oiled baking sheet.
Drizzle a little EVOO over the tomatoes.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 7-10 minutes. When they start toasting to that golden brown flip them over and cook the other side for another 7-10 minutes.
So easy but so good!
