Ingredients

How to make it

  • In a medium bowl, season the flour with salt and pepper.
  • Put the eggs in another medium bowl and toss the bread crumbs and grated Parmesan in a third bowl.
  • Dredge the tomato slices in the flour/cornmeal/bread crumbs/white pepper mixture, then coat them in the egg, letting any excess drip back into the bowl.
  • Coat in the bread crumbs, pressing to help them adhere.
  • In a large nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil until shimmering.
  • Add the breaded tomatoes in a single layer and cook them over moderately high heat, turning once, until deeply golden and crisp, 5 to 6 minutes.
  • Transfer the tomato slices to paper towel—lined plates.
  • Sprinkle with salt and serve immediately with Crème fraîche drizzle and a basil sprig, nice with a few of the basil flowers and tender leaves.
  • Variations: Instead of white pepper use Old Bay Seasoning.

    I hope it rains here soon. Then I will pick my greenish red tomatos right before it freezes so I can make these. My plants just want to be done because of the drought. L.

    Trigger, the "green tomatoes" we use are truly "green" or un-ripened ones. That's where the firmness and tang comes from is the firm green-ish red. I like to use the ones that are somewhere between green and red--they're not quite so bitterish-tangy. Hope this helps,
    --Kn0x-- (in other words, unripened reds. try them with just a tad bit of red to them--mostly still green)
