We've made this twice recently. I have to admit, our flavor palette is not Southern but we do love southern dishes with a Canadian flair. Personally, I do not care for cornmeal so when a traditional recipe like this called for breadcrumbs and parmesan, I had to try it. I also object to deep frying for health reasons. So I pan fried these in a non-stick pan with a bit of Pam and they turned out fabulous. That was why we had them twice! And the second time, I inadvertently used a tablespoon of garlic powder vs a teaspoon. DH says I can double that again, next time.
Best green tomato recipe I've made. Even my mil who is not fond of fried tomatoes enjoyed this northern style recipe.
floured and refrigerated tomatoes for an hour, then started this recipe, it made a big difference, all ways do that first.
This recipe worked well, I will use it again. I guess us Yankees need to stick together.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.
Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
