Panko Fried Green Tomatoes and Mushrooms

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 10 mins

Panko gives a light crispy coating on the tomatoes. Do not over fry the tomatoes you want them to be completely firm but hot through and nicely browned. Increase recipe to do as many slices as you want I just made it for 2 people. This makes a lovely brunch side dish

Absolutely delicious!!! These are the best fried green tomatoes I have ever cooked. My husband and I raved over them with every bite we took! I mix some mayo, horseradish and fresh dill for a dip. EXCELLENT!!!

I have been eating fried green tomatoes all my life, but never thought of pairing them with mushrooms.Here in the south Panko is not the easiest thing to find. It definitely gave them a different texture than flour and cornmeal. 4 slices is definitely not enough to feed a working man. Excellent side dish. Jim
