Fried Green Tomatoes

This recipe comes from, posted in October of 2005 ( The author writes that this is “a great way to make use of end-of-the-season tomatoes.”

Fried Green Tomatoes
3 medium, firm green tomatoes
½ cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup milk
2 beaten eggs
⅔ cup fine dry bread crumbs or cornmeal
olive oil
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper

1. Cut unpeeled tomatoes into ½-inch slices. Sprinkle slices with salt and pepper and let stand for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, place flour, milk, eggs, and bread crumbs in separate shallow dishes.
2. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Dip tomato slices in milk, then flour, then eggs, and then bread crumbs. In the skillet, fry half of the coated tomato slices at a time, for 4 to 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.
