[Editor’s note : This recipe yields 40 to 50 servings. We followed it as provided by the chef. At the very least, you may want to halve this recipe.]

Marinate sliced green tomatoes (for the amount in this recipe, 15 to 20 tomatoes are needed sliced 1/4 inch thick) for 20 minutes. Coat well with breading. [ Editor’s note : We recommend repeating this process to keep the tomatoes from falling apart.] Fry at 350 degrees for 3 minutes or until golden brown.

To serve, place 3 to 4 slices on a plate.
