That’s right, I said fried. Since we are entering the peak of tomato season, I thought I’d post a new recipe I tried recently with great success:
- 2-3 red beefsteak tomatoes
- 4 eggs beat
- 1-1 1/2 cups coconut flour, seasoned with kosher salt and black pepper
- 1 avocado
- 4 slices cooked bacon
- Sliced red onion rings
Heat butter in saute pan over medium heat. Slice tomatoes in about 1/2 inch thick slices. Dip each slice in egg and then move to the coconut flour mixture, coating both sides. Place slices in hot pan with melted butter. Brown each side and remove from heat. Top with red onion rings, bacon and sliced avocado.
I really enjoyed this meal as something that was not only easy, but flavorful and filling. A great take on friend green tomatoes, with a few extra added summer ingredients!
OMG, this looks soooo good, I’m definitely going to try it. And pretty too!
You should try it while I am at home…just a thought! 🙂
Why coconut flour? Does it taste like coconut?
Hi Heather! Coconut flour or almond flour, because it is paleo-friendly! It isn’t processed, bleached, refined, and things aren’t added to it that I’m uncomfortable eating. In no way did it taste like coconut, and every recipe I’ve used it in, I can never taste it.
Cool, thanks for the info. We can’t use almond flour, because Tom has nut allergies, but I might give the coconut flour a try. This recipe looks yummy!
Anytime Heather! Let me know if you have questions.
