Fried Green Tomatoes

There is one dish that I think about every year. It brings about feelings of nostalgia and that warm and fuzzy feeling. The first time that I made them, my daughters were literally standing right next to me as I pulled the fried tomatoes from the pan. We ate them, sprinkled with salt and topped with a dipping sauce that I had whipped up.

Being able to spend that time, over a meal and with the ones that I day ever.

  • 3 Large Green Tomatoes
  • Canola or Vegetable Oil


  • 1/2 Cup of Flour
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
  • 1/8 Teaspoon of Pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon of Garlic


  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/2 Cup of Milk


  • 1/2 Tablespoon of Salt
  • 1 3/4 Cup of Seasoned Breadcrumbs
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon of Onion Powder


  1. Pour oil into cooking pan to about 1/2" in depth and heat the oil to medium heat.
  2. Slice the tomatoes in 1/4" thick slices. 
  3. Combine each mixture in three separate bowls, starting with the flour mixture, then the egg wash, followed by breadcrumb coating mixture. 
  4. Place a tomato slice in the flour. Coat both sides and tap off any extra mixture. 
  5. Next, dip the tomato slice in the egg wash, Turn over to make sure that it's evenly coated.
  6. Finally, dredge the tomato through the breadcrumb coating, Make sure that both sides are thoroughly coated and shake off any excess mixture. 
  7. Gently place the sliced tomato in into the heated oil. In 2 to 3 minutes, check the side face down for a nice golden brown color then flip it over to brown the other side. 
  8. Once each side is golden, remove the cooked tomato and set it on a baking rack to drain. Sprinkle with flaked sea salt while they are still hot. 
  9. Allow to cool some and enjoy!
  10. Place each avocado in a small baking pan next to each other. If you have trouble with them staying face up or tilting to the side, take a piece of aluminum foil and create a little cup to set the avocado half in. 
  11. You want to make sure the your egg stays securely nested in the center, use a teaspoon to remove some of the avocado.  Crack one egg into each of the avocado halves. 
  12. Place them into the oven for 15-20 minutes. Remove when the egg whites have become opaque and the yolks begin to firm up. 
  13. Sprinkle spice with spice seasoning, bacon crumbles, diced tomatoes and drizzle with lemon juice. 
  14. Dig in and enjoy!
