“When firm, tart green tomatoes are coated in bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese the pan-fried, they become amazingly crispy on the outside, and warm and juicy on the inside. If green tomatoes are difficult to find, fresh tomatillos make an excellent substitute.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium bowl, season the flour with salt and pepper.
  2. Put the eggs in another medium bowl and toss the bread crumbs and grated Parmesan cheese in a third bowl.
  3. Dredge the tomato slices in the flour, then coat them in the egg, letting any excess drip back into the bowl.
  4. Coat in the bread crumbs, pressing to help them adhere.
  5. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil until shimmering.
  6. 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.
  7. Transfer the tomato slices to paper towel-lined plates.
  8. Sprinkle with salt and Old Bay Seasoning and serve immediately with hot sauce.
