Not-so-fried, not-so-green tomatoes

As I have mentioned before, I dislike tomatoes in their raw state, but I do love tomato products and foods one of which is fried green tomatoes but sometimes the green ones are hard to find so I substituted with yellowy, orange ones but any firm non-red tomato would work. I love this recipe because it takes an unhealthy fried comfort food, keeps the flavor all while losing the fried oil and greasiness.

  • Two tomatoes (medium size), sliced about 1/4 inch thick
  • 1/2 cup AP unbleached flour
  • 1/2 cup bisquik Heart Health baking mix
  • 1/4 cup corn meal
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • egg whites

  1. Mix all dry ingredients. 
  2. Take sliced tomatoes and dip them in egg whites until well covered.
  3. Coat them with the dry mix until well covered.
  4. Place on baking sprayed sheet pan or baking sheet pan lined with non-stick mat.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees until you notice browning (10 mins), flip and continue to bake until well browned on both sides. (about 15-20 mins total)
Dry ingredients
Slice tomatoes about 1/4 inch thick
Have a little station order set up to speed up production. Take slices soak in egg white, batter them, place on sheet.

This is in the oven about half way through cooking, I turned them when they looked like this.
This is the yummy tomatoes finished. So golden brown and not an ounce of greasy oil
We had them with cheesy grits and green beans. I also made a homemade remoulade from stuff I found, it was ok, but I needed proper remoulade ingredients.
