Fried Tomato "Burgers" step by step
- Cut (out of the center) two 1/2-3/4 inch thick slices of tomato. Lay the slices on a few sheets of paper towel, and top with a few more sheets for a few minutes, this is to wick excess moisture away..
- Once the surface is not sopping wet, use a basting brush to apply a SMALL amount of worcestershire sauce to both sides of the tomato, followed by salt and pepper. Be sure to use a large grain salt like kosher, and freshly grind your pepper (somewhat coarse)..
- Upon completion, set slices on a plate with a dusting of flour on it, then lightly dust the tops with more flour. (You don't need much, use restraint) Pat the flour lightly into the tomato slices..
- Whisk an egg in a bowl, and pour on top of the tomato slices, flip the slices to coat..
- Transfer the slices onto a bed of panko breadcrumbs, and top with additional panko (as with the flour, use only a bit more than you think you'll need. This will cut down on waste). Pat the breadcrumbs into the slices, transfer to a baking sheet with a cooling rack to rest and chill in the fridge for around 1 hour..
- Using a heavy pan (i.e. cast iron), bring your oil to 350 degrees. (This is important, you'll have greasy tomatoes if your oil isn't hot enough. Seriously, use a thermometer). Once the oil is heated, work in batches, and lower your slices into the oil (a spider strainer works well here)..
- Fry just long enough to get both sides golden-brown. You don't want to cook the tomato too much, this works way better if the center of the tomato is still kind of raw. If I had to guess, I'd say around 2-3 minutes a side..
- Once the tomato slices finish frying, pull them from the oil, blot lightly with a paper towel and sprinkle with more salt. Serve on top of a crisp leaf of romaine or some other lettuce, a swipe of mustard and a small mound of relish..
Green tomatoes are sliced, breaded, and deep fried to golden perfection. Crunchy with just a hint of tartness, the fried green tomatoes pair perfectly with the burger patty and a classic Southern comeback sauce. Whether you dip them in bacon ranch, make a grilled cheese sandwich with them or sandwich mozzarella in between two of them, fried green tomatoes are down right delicious. But when you take a perfectly crispy fried green tomato and place it on top of a burger with lettuce and a cajun mayo, well in the words of Uncle Jesse, have mercy. But instead of tossing them out with the garden waste, use them up in these top-rated recipes that call specifically for the firm texture and tart flavor that green tomatoes bring to the mix.
