Makes: 16 Tomato slices or 8 Appetizer portions
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 4 medium green tomatoes
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup cornmeal
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F, and spray a sheet pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Trim ends from the tomatoes, and discard. Slice each tomato into 4 thick slices.
  3. In a wide bowl, whisk the eggs and buttermilk until well combined.
  4. In a second wide bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, onion powder, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  5. Dip each slice of tomato into the flour mixture, then the egg mixture, and then back into the flour mixture to fully coat before placing on the prepared sheet pan.
  6. Bake for 12 minutes before flipping the breaded tomatoes. Bake for an additional 10–13 minutes, or until the breaded tomatoes are crisp and lightly browned. If desired, sprinkle lightly with additional salt as soon as you remove them from the oven.
