  • In a shallow bowl, whisk together eggs and milk; set aside. In a second shallow bowl, whisk together flour, 1/2-teaspoon salt, and 1/4-teaspoon pepper; set aside.

  • Place panko in a shallow bowl along with cornmeal, remaining teaspoon salt, and 1/2-teaspoon pepper; stir to combine and set aside.

  • Working with one tomato slice at a time, coat tomatoes with flour mixture, shaking off excess. Coat with egg mixture, followed by breadcrumb mixture. Transfer to a wire rack set over a parchment-lined baking sheet; repeat process with remaining slices.

  • Heat 2 cups oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until it reaches 350 degrees on a deep-fry thermometer. Working in batches, carefully place tomatoes into the heated oil in a single layer. Fry until golden, turning once, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Drain on a paper towel-lined baking sheet. After frying half of the tomato slices, discard oil and heat remaining 2 cups oil in skillet; continue frying remaining tomato slices. Serve tomatoes immediately with aioli.

What a wonderful recipe! Especially when one has a copy of the movie, "Fried Green Tomatoes- at the Whistle Stop Cafe" with Mary Stuart Masterson and Kathy Bates to watch while eating!

Fried green tomatoes, sprinkled with shaved parmesan, are delicious atop a bed of salad greens, with fresh basil leaves, drizzled with a balsamic/olive oil dressing.

Nebraska farm, where gardens produce large tomato crops, we have had green fried tomatoes for a life time, just used our own home made bread, and never heard of aioli (guess I'll have to take a look) rest of recipe seems the same, and we all love them so much. Please try them--all of you--you will be glad you did.
