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.

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. Turn the heat down to 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.
step 7
When the edges underneath start to turn golden brown, flip them over in the same order they went into the pan. When they're golden brown on that side, about 3-4 minutes, transfer them to paper towels to drain
