Parmesan Pan-Fried Tomatoes

Parmesan Pan-Fried TomatoesCrispy pan-fried ripe tomatoes, breaded with seasoned panko crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Terrific served alongside grilled or roasted meats and poultry. Or, for a delicious breakfast treat, serve them with bacon and eggs.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon onion powder
2 teaspoons granulated garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup panko Japanese bread crumbs
12 slices tomatoes, sliced 1/2-inch thick (about 3 tomatoes)
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons olive oil

Cooking Directions:

  1. Combine flour, onion powder, granulated garlic, salt and pepper. Mix well.
  2. In separate bowl combine panko and Parmesan.
  3. In third bowl combine eggs and mustard.
  4. Take slices of tomato and dip in flour, dust off excess. Then dip in egg mixture, letting excess drip off. Finally dip in parmesan/panko mixture, pressing Parmesan mixture onto slices for good coverage. Repeat until all slices are breaded. These should be stored in a single layer dusted lightly with extra crumbs.
  5. Heat olive oil in non-stick frying pan, over medium-high heat. Place 3 slices in pan, and let cook about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes on each side, until just golden brown. Don't flip too soon or Parmesan mix will fall off. Serve hot.

Makes 4 servings.
