Fried green tomatoes or cucumbers
Here is a receipe I found on lowcarb friends for fried green tomatoes and/or cucumbers. I have not tried it yet but plan to before my poor tomatoes freeze on the vine.
Ingredients: 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!!!
