6-8 small to medium green tomatoes, tops and bottoms removed, sliced 1/2″ thick
1 Cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 Cup yellow cornmeal
2 tbsp. flour
2 eggs, beaten
salt, pepper, cayenne pepper
Place the sliced tomatoes on a wire rack over a cookie sheet. Sprinkle with the salt, pepper and cayenne pepper to taste. Allow to sit for 1/2 hour to drain excess moisture. Combine the breadcrumbs, cornmeal and flour in a bowl. Dip each slice of tomato in the beaten eggs and then in the breadcrumb mixture to coat well. Place in a fry pan coated lightly with olive oil. Repeat this with all the tomatoes. Fry on medium heat until browned, turn over and brown on other side, add a small amount of oil to the pan if needed. Serve immediately.
I like to serve these with a side of remoulade sauce.
