What's Cookin'

A confession as a true southern girl...I have never had fried green tomatoes!  That all changed this weekend when we decided to fry some so big ol' green tomatoes, along with our zucchini and squash.  If you have never fried summer squash, it is the best!!!!

On a side note, you can do these same steps and bake these veggies at 425 degrees for about 25-30 minutes and flip once.  This is the usual for our house and very tasty! But every now and then we splurge with frying, and it is ooooohhhhhh so delicious!

Set up a dredging station.

1st station - 1 1/2 cup of flour w/ 1 tsp of salt and pepper
2nd station - 1/2 cup of milk whisked with 1 egg
3rd station - panko crumbs with 1 tsp of salt and 1/2 tsp of onion and garlic powder (I also add Italian seasoning and Parmesan sometimes when baking)

Dredge the thinly sliced veggies (for tomatoes you want a thicker cut) in that order.  Fry in a frying pan with 2 inches of heated canola oil.  Fry for about 2 minutes per side.  Drain on a cooling rack set up over a pan and immediately after removing from oven or grease sprinkle with a little salt!

"I will not leave you comfortless:  I will come to you."  John 14:18
