Gerbs Fried Green Tomatoes

Summer vegetables are right around the corner, home gardens and the bountiful farmers markets across the region, give you so many options! When these tomatoes are frying, Galen and I can close our eye’s and we are transported back to Dennisport Cape Cod, in a small cottage on the beach, the sound of waves, fresh percolated coffee, bacon, eggs, and our mother Lorraine frying a fresh batch of Green Tomatoes (she also did Zucchini Flowers)! Printable recipe images at the bottom.


  • 4 large Green Tomatoes
  • 2 Eggs (substitute with Flax Egg)
  • 1/2 cup Milk (substitute flax milk)
  • 1 cup Gerbs All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup Gerbs Super 5 Seed Meal
  • 1/2 cup Gerbs Breadcrumbs
  • 2 teaspoons Gerbs Himalayan Sea Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Gerbs Ground Black pepper
  • Pinch Gerbs Rosemary Garlic Seasoning
  • ¼ cup Parmesan Cheese (optional)
  • 1 quart Sunflower/Pumpkin Oil


  • Slice tomatoes 1/2 inch thick. Do not include ends. Place on large board and coat with sea salt to extract natural juices, let stand 10 minutes.
  • Whisk eggs and milk together in a medium-size bowl.
  • Sift flour onto a large plate, set aside. Mix Super Seed Meal, breadcrumbs, rosemary garlic mix, salt & pepper on another plate. Dip tomatoes into flour to coat. Then dip the tomatoes into milk and egg mixture. Dredge in breadcrumbs to completely coat.
  • In a large cast iron skillet, pour sunflower oil (enough so that there is 1/2 inch of oil in the pan) and heat over a medium-high heat. Place tomatoes into the frying pan 5 or 6, depending on the size of your skillet. Overcrowding your skillet, allowing tomatoes to touch will decrease temperature and likelihood of getting a good crust. When the tomatoes are browned fork flip and fry them on the other side. Remove fried tomatoes and place on paper towels. Top with Parmesan cheese (optional).
