Enjoy the 4,000+ Low Carb Recipes!!!
Have you ever had the pleasure to eat homemade fried green tomatoes or cucumbers??? The kind like Mom made - not the deep fried kind at the fair. PAN FRIED!!! MMMMmmmmmm! Here is a very simple method that uses no flour though it tastes very much like the original recipe!
green tomatoes or cucumbers (both are very good)
one or two eggs beaten (one for 1/2 cucumber/1 green tomato - 2 for whole cucumber/2 tomatoes)
salt and pepper to taste
How To Prepare:
Melt 2 tbsp of butter in frying pan on med. low as not to burn the butter. If using cucumbers, cut the skins off first and then slice 1/8 - 1/4'' thick (your preference), tomatoes use same thickness. Beat your eggs in one bowl and place another bowl next to it with about 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese inside. Place veggies in egg one at a time, careful to cover both sides and then turn in the parmesan cheese coating evenly. Place in hot skillet and sprinkle with salt and pepper. It takes just a few minutes until they are ready to be turned, let them become a deep golden brown on both sides. That's it and they are scrumptious!!!
Number of Servings:
1 cucumber or 2 tomatoes can serve 2-4 depending on appetite!
Carbs per serving - include all nutritional information if known:
very low - you only need to count the carbs for the cucumber or tomato itself.
