We found a way to get the flavor of a fried tomato without all the oil. To make sure the pan is hot enough to yield a crispy crust, preheat it while you're preparing the green tomatoes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°.

Step 2

To prepare the green tomatoes, combine flour and next 4 ingredients (flour through sugar) in a shallow dish. Dip tomato slices in milk; dredge in flour mixture. Lightly coat both sides of tomato slices with cooking spray.

Step 3

Place a baking sheet in oven; heat at 400° for 5 minutes. Remove from oven; immediately coat with cooking spray. Place tomato slices on preheated baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 25 minutes, turning after 15 minutes.

Step 4

To prepare the gravy, melt butter in a medium nonstick saucepan over medium heat. Add mushrooms and onion, and cook 4 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Add chopped red tomato; bring to a boil, and cook for 10 minutes or until liquid almost evaporates. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Spoon the gravy over the tomato slices.

I've never had true fried green tomatoes so don't have a comparison, but these were tasty. I liked the warm soft tomatoes in contrast to the crisp breading. The tomato gravy was fine, but I enjoyed the mushrooms/onion best, and would use this in a classic brown gravy instead of pairing tomato with tomato.

I didn't make the gravy, but unfortunately, the tomato part of the recipe really didn't come out well for me. I'm a Southern girl, and this just wasn't close enough to satisfy my craving this week. And yes, I do have fresh green tomatoes in almost December down here, which is amazing!

Love this recipe! its a great way to fufill a craving for fried green tomatoes. I made my gravy with shiitake mushrooms and it gave it a great twist. I also ran out of fresh tomatoes and used a can of roasted tomatoes which added a deeper flavor. The gravy would be great on just about anything!
