Fried Green Tomatos

To the person interested in a nonfat fgt recipe:

Here is the one I use:

Crispy Baked Green Tomatos

green tomatos sliced about 1/4 inch thick
1 eggwhite beaten with 1 tablespoon water or milk
pinch salt
pinch sugar
pinch black pepper
pinch cayenne pepper
optional: pinch dill or basil or parsley (or all three!)

-Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
-mix cornmeal and spices and sugar (I think the sugar is important to cut the
bitterness of the green tomatos)
-dip the tomato slices in the eggwhite (note:  I have skipped the eggwhite
dip and
that works fine, too- I think the eggwhite might make the final product a tad
more crispy)
-bake on a 'pam' sprayed cookie sheet for about 15-20 min- the time
will depend on how thick and how juicy the tomatos are.  I sometimes
carefully flip them half way through baking.

There would be good served with a rice and black bean salad.

Good luck,
Pam D
