Zesty Fried Green Tomatoes

Bob loves fried green tomatoes.  He said my new version was the best ever.  He loved the chipotle powder.  You can eliminate it, of course, but we like the heat.


3 large green tomatoes, washed and sliced ½“ thick

2 cups AP flour

½ cup yellow corn meal

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp parsley

Salt and pepper

¾ tsp chipotle chili powder

3 eggs, beaten

3 TBSP milk


In small bowl, beat egg and milk.  Add salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

Place flour and corn meal in a second bowl, add parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, and chipotle chili powder. Stir.

Dip sliced tomatoes first in flour, then in egg, then in flour again.

Heat a large frying pan and cover bottom with olive oil.  Cook until tomatoes are soft and desired color is reached.  Approximately 5 minutes per side.  Drain on paper toweling.
