Panko and Parmesan Crusted Fried Green Tomatoes

Panko and Parmesan Crusted Fried Green Tomatoes

Tomato season is winding down.  Don’t throw away those unripe green tomatoes. Turn them into fried green tomatoes topped with fresh mozzarella cheese and chopped basil and finished with a balsamic glaze.


I enjoy fried green tomatoes this time of year. While they lack the sweetness of ruby red ones, you don’t want to toss them. Turn them into a special appetizer or side dish instead.

This southern dish is traditionally made with cornmeal after an egg wash.  But I like to use Panko breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese as a crunchy alternative.

It takes about 30 minutes from start to finish. Once their golden brown you’ll want to top each tomato with a thin slice of fresh mozzarella cheese and some basil then drizzle a little balsamic glaze over top.

So delicious!
