Bobby’s Lighter Fried Green Tomatoes

1059 Fewer Calories
114g Less Carbs

Ingredients:

1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk
1 egg white
10 drops hot sauce (about 1/2 teaspoon)
1 cup cornmeal
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon canola oil
3 large green tomatoes, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices (about 1 1/2 pounds)

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 450°F. Spray a large cookie sheet with nonstick spray.

Combine buttermilk, egg white, and hot sauce in a medium bowl. Mix cornmeal and salt in a pie dish. Dip the tomato slices into the buttermilk mixture, then into the cornmeal, gently turning to coat.

Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add half the tomato slices in a single layer and cook until browned on one side, 3 – 4 minutes.

Transfer the slices, browned-side up, to the cookie sheet. Lightly spray the tomatoes with nonstick spray. Bake until the tomatoes are golden brown on both sides, about 8 minutes. Wipe the skillet clean and repeat with the remaining oil, and tomato slices.
Serve hot.

Test Kitchen Note: about 5 (1/4-inch-thick slices per tomato), 2 ½ tomato slices per serving
