Summer is in full swing and gardens are producing tomatoes like crazy! It’s always at this time of year that I start craving fresh tomato sandwiches and fried tomatoes. My mom always makes fried red tomatoes…one of my favorite summer dishes! It’s so simple to make!
You will need:
1 cup flour
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
Several medium tomatoes
Whisk the eggs
Mix the Parmesan cheese, flour, salt, pepper, garlic and onion powders together in a bowl big enough for dredging
Slice up your tomatoes
Dip the tomatoes in egg mixture
Dredge through flour mixture, coating both sides. Preheat about 1/2 inch oil in a pan on medium heat.
Place tomatoes in preheated oil
Fry for a few seconds on both sides until golden brown
These make a great side dish or lunch!
