Fried Green Tomatoes for Breakfast


Eating fried green tomatoes for breakfast is a revelation.

This past weekend, I decided to get up early on Saturday to attend a new "Hard Core Dance Class" at the YMCA. After the lesson in humiliation was over, (but definitely a good workout) I came home to the reality of making a weekend breakfast at more of a brunch time of day.

It was time to call an audible. So I surmised the bleak situation and got started.  Bacon in a 400 degree oven - check. Coat the fried green tomatoes - check. Fry up a couple of eggs - check.

Then I proceeded to make my breakfast concoction. Place a fried green tomato on the bottom. Lay a fried egg on top of it and then some shredded cheddar cheese, two pieces of bacon and some baby lettuce mix coated lightly with a lemon vinaigrette.

It's not worthy of an actual recipe but this is my method of creating a fried green tomato...

1 large green tomato
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp of ground black pepper
2 large eggs

Combine flour and spices together. Mix throughly so they are distributed evenly. Slice the green tomato into 1/2 inch thick slices. Put in flour mixture. After the tomato has been dipped once in flour on both sides, put in the egg mixture. Then put back in the flour mixture. Fry in  extra virgin olive oil  on medium high heat until golden brown on both sides.
