Fried Green Tomatoes With Gluten Free Breading

I have had an over abundance of green tomatoes in our garden this year. The tomatoes seem to ripening much more slowly than normal. Seeing all those green tomatoes gave me a craving for breaded fried green tomatoes. I decided to try making them gluten free so that my grandson Little Bug might be able to enjoy them also.

Ingredients
2-3 sliced green tomatoes
4 tablespoons almond meal flour
2 tsp coconut flour
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
salt and pepper to taste
3-5 tablespoons olive oil for frying

Combine almond meal flour, coconut flour, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix well.   Mix milk and egg together in a small bowl. Heat the pan with olive oil. I used medium heat. Dip the tomato slices in the egg mixture and then dip into breading. Fry each side until golden brown. Place on paper towels to absorb oil. Serve cold or hot.

They sure did turn out tasty. They lasted about 15 minutes on our table. How do you like your tomatoes? Do you have a favorite summer recipe?

  1. Oh Bonnie... Yummy. We have been making them also. My Hubs loves them so much. To his, I add garlic and hot peppers when I fry them.. but for me, I like them like you do them.
