If you love fried green tomatoes as much as my family – have I got a recipe for you. It’s fast and easy and uses less fat to prepare. They are baked – and they are delicious.
My husband would be happy with a large dinner plate full of fried green tomatoes for dinner and not want anything else. This recipe for using the oven instead of the frying pan is husband approved.
Parmesan Green Tomatoes
Wash and slice firm green tomatoes, Dry each slice by blotting with a paper towel.
Dip each slice in a mixture of tomato vinegrette and cover well.. I used Newman’s Own Tomato Vinegrette.
Shake each green tomato slice in a bag filled with Parmesan Shake and Bake until the slice is fully coated. Lightly grease a baking pan with olive oil and arrange slices separately in pan.
Drizzle some olive oil on the tops of the slices before baking. Bake at 375 degrees for 30–45 minutes until golden and crisp and soft to piercing. Sprinkle baked green tomatoes with freshly grated parmesan.
Serve with catsup or your favorite remoulade. I vary the ingredients for the remoulade from time to time, but include some of the following ingredients to taste: 1/4 cup mayo, squeeze of lemon juice, 1/2 cup catsup, 1 Tablespoon mustard,1 finely minced garlic clove, 1 Tablespoon minced onion, Cajun seasoning, pepper, 1/2 teaspoon horseradish sauce
We have found a new home that has space for a small garden. Our last home of 20 years was on a wooded lot and there was too much shade to have a garden. I have missed the opportunity to have a vegetable and herb garden since we moved from Indiana a number of years ago. Our tomatoes are producing like crazy. I am in heaven.
NOTE to online friends of my blog. We have found just the perfect place to make a new home. I’ll share more about that later.

I’ve never had the opportunity to try green tomatoes. Goes by previous comments, that’s about to change. Thanks for the recipe. 😀
Thanks for sharing the beautiful red, ripe tomatoes from your garden with your neighbor. So delicious! I’ve about worn out my toaster oven making toasted tomato & cheese sandwiches.
Your sandwich of toasted tomato and cheese sounds so good. Will try it.
I find fried green tomatoes addictive – it’s one right after the other once I get started!! So, I’ll be happy to try this one, thanks, Sue.
I agree. They are a delicacy in summer. Womenlivinglifeafter50.com
Baking these is so much better. I remember them dripping with hot oil when I was growing up. Looking forward to hearing about your new home. It is great being able to grow a few things. Plenty green tomatoes!
Though fried green tomatoes weren’t a part of my diet growing up, I’ve since enjoyed them. Having a recipe for baking them is very much preferred – no used oil to dispose. And with this year’s tomatoes taking forever to ripen, there’ll be no shortage of green tomatoes. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
Good to hear from you. Womenlivinglifeafter50.com
