Panko-Crusted Fried Green Tomatoes

I love these things and I can hardly wait until the end of summer when I can go to my garden find the perfect tomatoes and fry them up!  I grew up eating them and loved the way my Mom use to make them with a crusty corn meal coating. But I wanted to try them coated in crispy panko this time and boy am I glad I did!  Moist and juicy on the inside with just that light crunch to make them so delicious!  My Mom would have loved them this way!

Panko-Crusted Fried Green Tomatoes

3 tablespoons of Star Fine Foods Extra Virgin Olive Oil for Vegetables
1 tablespoon of butter
3-4 medium-sized firm green tomatoes
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
2 eggs

1/2 cup milk
2 cups panko bread crumbs

Slice green tomatoes about 1/2 inch think and lay them out on a paper towel. Sprinkle with salt and set them aside for about ten minutes.  

In a medium-sized bowl combine flour, salt, garlic powder and black pepper, stir to combine well. In another medium bowl whisk the eggs with the milk. In a third bowl, place the panko breadcrumbs.

First dredge the tomato slices in flour mixture, shaking off excess.  Dip in egg mixture making certain to completely coat the tomato slice.  Dip in panko breadcrumbs turning to coat evenly. 

In a large heavy skillet, melt the oil and the butter over medium high heat until it starts to sizzle lightly. Fry in the tomato slices until crisp and golden brown on each side.  Drain on paper towels, serve!
