These are quite good. Not quite the same as their pan-fried cousins, but a nice veggie treat nonetheless. I think I will increase the black pepper a bit next time, and might add a bit of buttermilk to the egg as well. Make sure to serve these babies hot for the best results! Thanks for posting.

A great way to use green tomatoes that still falls in the "weight-watchers-friendly" category. i've never had real fried green tomatoes, but these tasted just fine.
