Green tomatoes are one of the beautiful things about summer. Cutting the tomatoes into slices, breading them in flour and seasonings, and frying them up in olive oil is even more beautiful. I was fortunate enough to receive a couple unwanted green tomatoes from my mother-in-law, and that is exactly what I did with them.
My recipe is only a few basic ingredients. I like to keep things simple, especially on hot summer days. Turning on your stove is completely worth it, because fried green tomatoes are always a perfect treat on a summer day. Just pair them with a glass of cold iced tea, and you are in business!
2 green tomatoes
1 cup flour
2 Tbsp garlic powder
1/2 Tbsp dried parsley
salt & pepper
1. In a skillet over medium/high heat., heat up about 1/4 cup olive oil.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and a couple splashes of milk. Set aside.
3. In another small bowl, mix together the flour, garlic powder, and parsley. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
4. Slice your tomatoes about 1/2 inch thick.
5. Taking one slice at a time, dip into the egg/milk mixture, then dredge to coat in the flour mixture. Repeat.
6. Carefully place a few slices into the heated oil. Don't crowd the tomatoes! Allow to fry up for 2-3 minutes, flip, then repeat until all the tomato slices are ready to devour! Serve with Jalapeno Ranch Dressing for some spice.

Key lime pie is a BIG deal in my house. Anytime key lime pie is mentioned around my husband and I, we immediately get mushy toward each other. We get romantic and silly and cheesy, and make googly eyes at each other and always say we should make key lime pie more often. Oh geez, why do we do it, you ask? Well, key lime pie was the first recipe we ever made together.
