Jersey Fried Tomatoes

Recipe by LNiessner
READY IN: 40mins


  • Make ahead of time
  • 3 -4
    lbs bacon (save the grease eat the bacon!)
  • 1 12
    tablespoons per 2-3 slices tomatoes
  • 4
    jersey tomatoes, sliced (when they aren't in season I use the ugly tomatoes)
  • 1
  • 2
    tablespoons milk
  • salt and pepper
  • 2
    cups breadcrumbs


  • Mix egg, milk, salt, and pepper together.
  • Dip tomato slices in egg mixture and cover in bread crumbs.
  • In large skillet add enough bacon grease to cover pan.
  • In a large skillet fry tomato slices on each side until golden brown. (Make sure that when you flip them and during cooking that enough bacon grease is in the pan.).
  • Remove and place on paper towel.
  • Repeat until all tomato slices are cooked. Make sure to add more bacon grease to the pan between batches!
  • For a different taste my mom enjoys just dipping the tomato slices in flour and skipping the egg mixture and bread crumbs and frying the same way.
