Author's Notes

Instead of Ritz crackers, you can use Saltines or Panko bread crumbs. If crackers aren't handy, make your own breadcrumbs. Toast some bread, break it into pieces over a blender and pulse it on high until crumbs form.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Slice Green Tomatoes (3) in 1/2 inch slices and slightly Kosher Salt (1 Tbsp) on both sides. Let them rest on paper towels to draw out the excess water.
Step 2
Add the Butter (1/2 stick) and Vegetable Oil (1/2 cup) to a skillet, and cast iron works great! Turn the stove to a low heat.
Step 3
Prepare your Triple Coating Station with 3 shallow bowls: 1st bowl - Put your All-Purpose Flour (1 cup) in one. 2nd bowl - Beat Eggs (2) until just combined. 3rd bowl - Mix the Italian Seasoning (2 Tbsp) with the Ritz® Crackers (2 cups) .
Step 4
Pat the tomato slices dry. Working with one slice at a time, dredge it through the flour. Shake off any excess flour. Dip it into the beaten egg. Then submerge the slice in the crumb mixture. Lay it on a clean paper towel. Repeat with the remaining slices.
Step 5
When all the slices are laid out and triple coated, turn the skillet heat up to medium-high. Be careful not to burn the butter. If it starts to smoke, turn the heat down.
Step 6
After the butter has melted, in a clockwise pattern, start at the top and lay the tomato slices in the skillet. When the edges underneath start to turn golden brown, flip them over in the same order they went into the pan.
Step 7
When they're golden brown on that side, about 3-4 minutes, transfer them to paper towels to drain.
Step 8
Transfer to a serving plate and sprinkle with Fresh Herbs (1/2 cup) . Serve hot with garlic herb aioli mayo, ranch dressing or dipping sauce of choice.
