Fried Green Tomatoes Parmesan and Fried Zucchini Parmesan

Fried Green Tomatoes Parmesan and Fried Zucchini Parmesan (7)

Bob loves fried green tomatoes. Unfortunately, I never remember to make them until one of our tomatoes falls off the vine before it ripens. Then, just like that – I have a revelation! Fried Green Tomatoes for Bob!

     Between the garden (which is about 1 step from the back door) and the house, I changed my mind. I thought, “Hmm, I wonder what Fried Green Tomatoes Parmesan would taste like?”

      In the few seconds it took to wash the tomato and move to the counter, I saw a Zucchini just lying there with no recipe in mind. I thought, “Hmm, I wonder what Fried Zucchini Parmesan would taste like?” And I was off!
     This is how my mind works sometimes when I’m in the kitchen. Things just pop in there. I have no clue if Fried Green Tomato Parmesan – OR – Fried Zucchini Parmesan are real dishes or not. I’ve never heard of them. See the Mimi below? That’s me, and that’s how my mind works. I don’t have ADD, or at least I don’t think I do, but when the creative juices are working, this Mimi describes me perfectly.
     The Vegetables were knock your socks off delicious. I think even fussy little kids would like them because they are lightly crispy on the outside, have the sauce and cheese on top. They’ll think they’re having mini pizza.
INGREDIENTS:
2 Medium Green Tomatoes, washed and sliced ½“thick
1 Small Zucchini, washed and sliced ¾” thick
1 cup AP flour
½ cup yellow corn meal
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp parsley
Salt and pepper
2 eggs, beaten
2 TBSP milk
PREPARATION:
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. Stir.
Dip sliced tomatoes first in flour, then in egg, then in flour again. Coat both sides. Repeat with the Zucchini.
I cooked everything in the air fryer on one tray (See pics). I used aluminum foil which I lightly sprayed with cooking spray. After breading, I drizzled with Olive Oil and cooked them 10 min in air fryer until they were golden brown. Then I flipped them over, drizzled more olive oil and cooked for 6 -7 minutes or until they were golden brown.
NOTE: These could easily be pan fried, cooked in a convection oven, or a standard oven.
Dab a little Spaghetti Sauce or Marinara on top of each one. Sprinkle Parmesan, Romano, and Mozzarella Cheese on top. Return to air fryer for 2 minutes or until Cheeses are bubbly and golden.

2 cups AP flour

½ cup yellow corn meal

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp parsley

Salt and pepper

3 eggs, beaten

3 TBSP milk

 

PREPARATION:

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.

FRIED GREEN TOMATOES (New Version)

Fried Green Tomatoes (5)

     This is my brandy new Fried Green Tomatoes recipe.  If you like a thicker, crunchier breading on your fried tomatoes, this is the recipe for you!  I’ve added a bit of Chipotle Chili Powder, but that is entirely optional.

     If you would like to do a few fried summer squash at the same time, time and a half the seasoned flour recipe and follow the same instructions below.  It’s ok to fry tomatoes and squash at the same time.  I’ll give you pictures of both squash and green tomatoes at the end of the recipe, so you can decide. 

 

INGREDIENTS:

2 large green tomatoes

 

1 cup AP flour

1 ½ tsp baking powder

½ tsp salt

¼ Chili Chipotle powder (optional)

½ tsp pepper

½ tsp garlic powder

1 tsp parsley

 

½ cup buttermilk (or 1 good TBSP vinegar, fill rest of ½ cup measure with milk)

 

2 eggs beaten with 1 TBSP water

 

Canola oil for frying

 

 

PREPARATION: 

Slice the tomatoes into ½” slices.   Place the slices on a few layers of paper toweling for about fifteen minutes in order to allow some of the water to be absorbed.

In a small wide bowl, mix milk and vinegar with a fork and set aside. (or use real buttermilk).

Sift flour, baking powder, salt, Chipotle powder, pepper, garlic powder, and parsley in a small wide bowl.  I use a small strainer to do this quickly, and without having to dirty a lot of dishes.  I can use a spoon to fill up the strainer and then shake it right into the bowl I’ll be using for dredging the tomatoes.  Set aside.

In a third small bowl, beat eggs and water with fork.  Set aside.

Heat a large heavy skillet with about 1 ½” of Canola oil.  Once the oil is very hot, dip the tomatoes first in the buttermilk bowl, then dip in the seasoned flour, and then in the beaten egg, and finally back into the seasoned flour. (HA!  You get to double dip!).  Being cautious of the hot oil, place one piece at a time into the hot oil.  Don’t overcrowd the pan.  When browned on one side, flip over and brown the other side.

Drain on paper toweling.  Run to the table, eating one on the way.  They’ll disappear so quickly that you have to make sure you get your fair share.  After all . . . you are the Kitchen Diva!

SERVE WITH VARIOUS DIPPING SAUCES:  Blue cheese dressing, Italian dressing, hot sauce, Ranch dressing, Honey mustard, Dill dipping sauce, etc.
