Air Fried Green Tomatoes

Air Fried Green Tomatoes

If you grow tomatoes, you know that you can end up with some green tomatoes. Sometimes more that you can reasonably handle! I've tried making green salsa but to me, nothing beats the fried green tomato. It's a simple and quick treat that the whole family can enjoy.


1 1/2 cups of bread crumbs

2 eggs

1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon of onion powder

Salt and pepper to taste

3 or 4 medium green tomatoes

Ranch dressing to dip!


Step 1: Pour bread crumbs into a medium sized bowl

Step 2: Mix into the bread crumbs onion powder, garlic powder and a little salt and pepper to taste.

Step 3: Crack the eggs into a bowl and whip with a fork.

Step 4: Thinly slice your green tomatoes, a 1/4" roughly. (Green tomatoes are very firm so it will be easy to do this.)

Step 5: Dunk each tomato slice in the raw egg mixture before coating each slice into the bread crumb mixture.

Step 6: Place breaded tomato slices into a lightly greased air fryer basket and cook at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes.

Bonus tip: If you're not the biggest fan of fried green tomatoes, store them in a brown paper bag for a few days and like magic, they will turn red!
