Fried Green Tomatoes with Spicy Mayo

October 07, 2022



5 green tomatoes
3 tbsp vegetable oil
1 cup all purpose flour
2 eggs
2 cups bread crumbs
sea salt
black pepper
garlic powder
1/4 cup mayo
hot sauce of your choice



1. Slice tomatoes into 1 1/2 inch slices. Season with salt and pepper.

2. Create your breading stations: season flour with salt and pepper in one bowl, beat eggs in next bowl, season breadcrumbs with salt, pepper, paprika and garlic powder in last bowl.

3. In a frying pan, heat oil on low.

4. Meanwhile, bread the tomatoes. Start by dipping each tomato slice in the flour, then egg mix, then bread crumbs. Repeat for all tomato slices.

5. Add to pan and fry on each side until golden. Remove from pan and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain excess oil.

6. Whisk together mayo and hot sauce to create the sauce.

7. Serve tomatoes with sauce underneath or on the side, and squeeze lemon on top. Enjoy!
