  • Hands-on:30 Minutes
  • Total:40 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 medium-size green tomatoes (about 1 1/3 lb.)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup self-rising white cornmeal mix
  • 1/2 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 egg whites

Preparation

1. Cut tomatoes into 1/2-inch-thick slices; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Let stand 10 minutes.

2. Combine cornmeal mix and panko in a shallow dish or pie plate. Place flour in a second shallow dish or pie plate. Whisk egg whites in a medium bowl until foamy. Dredge tomato slices in flour, shaking off excess. Dip in egg whites, and dredge in cornmeal mixture.
