Fried Red Tomatoes


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
  • Butter

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!
