Ingredients

  1. Healthified Fried Green Tomatoes
  2. 1/4 C bread crumbs
  3. 1/4 C corn meal
  4. 1/4 C flour (I used whole wheat)
  5. 1/2 t garlic powder
  6. 1/2 t salt
  7. 1/8 t cayenne pepper
  8. 1 egg white
  9. 1/8 C water or milk (I used water)
  10. 3 medium size green tomatoes

Directions

In a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs, corn meal, flour, garlic powder, slat and cayenne pepper. Mix everything together.  Next, on a plate, crack one egg (letting just the white fall to the plate) and 1/4 C water or milk. Use a fork and whisk together until it is combined well.  Slice the tomatoes to about a 1/2 inch thick. Coat both sides of the tomato with the egg white mixture and then dredge both sides in the bread crumb mixture.  Heat a medium non-stick skillet to medium and spray with olive oil cooking spray. Once the pan is hot, place a few (do not over crowd) tomatoes in for about 1 minute and then COVER the plan. Allow to cook about 1 more minute and then flip the tomatoes. Leave them uncovered while to opposite side cooks!  Now, for the AMA-ZING topping (I think this part is a MUST!) You know that I have a slight obsession with figs…and that I recently made some great preserves (you can buy fig preserves at any grocery store as well). So, I thought the tartness of the tomatoes would go well with the sweetness of figs…and be made even better with a little goat cheese and walnuts. It is not only good on the tomatoes but amazing on chicken or pork!

Gently crumble all of the ingredients together in a small bowl and then top the tomatoes…yum!!
