AIR FRYER FRIED GREEN TOMATOES RECIPE
Air fryers have been one of those appliances that have been on my wish list for a while. I’d heard amazing things about them, reading about how they can take away the grease use and cut the fat calories from food, all with ease. Eating healthy with ease? Yes, please!
Needless to say, I was pretty excited when my mom got our family an air fryer for Christmas a couple of years back. It was something I had been wanting to experiment with ever since I’d first heard about it.
INGREDIENTS IN AIR FRYER FRIED GREEN TOMATOES
Green tomatoes - from the garden or from the grocery store.
Panko - I use a gluten free panko breadcrumb to make these nice and crispy.
Cornmeal - this adds texture to the breading.
Egg - Egg helps the crumbs and cornmeal stick to the tomatoes.
Spray oil - To keep everything from sticking and help the slices brown.
If you have any questions, please leave a comment below and I will get back to you.
For the coating, I used a combination of cornmeal and gluten-free panko. In this particular recipe, we used Ian's Gluten Free Italian Bread Crumbs.
These particular gluten-free bread crumbs are super allergen friendly. So if you need to avoid things like eggs, milk, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, and wheat, you should check them out!
HOW TO MAKE AIR FRYER FRIED GREEN TOMATOES
- Slice your tomatoes and place them on paper towels. I like to season with salt and pepper.
- Dip the sliced tomatoes into the beaten eggs and then into the panko and cornmeal mixture. Be sure to cover both sides.
- Place tomatoes into the air fryer basket.
- You are going to cook until golden on both sides.

I’ve owned my air fryer now for a while, and I have to be honest…I’ve yet to find a recipe that I don’t love. And did I mention how simple it is?
