Oven Fried Green Tomatoes

User Rating 2 Star Rating (5 Reviews)


Oven Fried Green Tomatoes


  • 4 to 6 green tomatoes, cut in 1/4-inch thick slices
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/3 cup water
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour


Sprinkle tomato slices with salt and pepper on both sides. In a shallow bowl mix beaten eggs, milk, and water. Put the all-purpose flour in a shallow bowl. Dip each slice into egg mixture, then into flour.* Dip each slice into egg and then into the flour again.

Arrange tomatoes in large, shallow baking pans lined with parchment paper or well greased, or bake in 1 pan, in batches. Tomatoes should not touch.

Bake uncovered in 400° oven 20 minutes, turning halfway through.

For crunchier coating, dip slices the second time into egg mixture then into seasoned bread crumbs or corn flake crumbs, with a little Parmesan cheese, if desired.

Oven Fried Green Tomatoes, Member WAJIII

I would NOT try them again. Very dry and not tasting at all like traditional fried green tomatoes. If you do make these, flip them over half way through the baking time. These were very dry and not uniformily browned. The double dipping is not at all necessary and does not contribute to the coating. I,also, found the salt and pepper floated off when I dipped the tomatoes into the egg&milk mixture. I found I had to re-salt and re-pepper the tomato slices. If you do make this recipe, keep the slices slightly thicker than the 1/4 inch suggested.
