Panko and Parmesan Crusted Fried Green Tomatoes

Panko and Parmesan Crusted Fried Green Tomatoes

Tomato season is winding down. ┬áDon’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!
