What a great summer treat! Easy and fun, these fried green tomatoes have a crispy crushed pretzel crust and are served with a garlic aioli dipping sauce. They are fried in a mixture of olive oil and vegetable oil.
- 4 medium green tomatoes, sliced 1/4 inch thick
- 1 cup finely crushed no-salt pretzels
- 1 cup flour
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon and 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder, divided
- 1 teaspoon and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, divided
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 cup olive oil
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
- 1/4 light sour cream
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
To make the garlic aioli, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, and lemon juice in a small bowl. Add 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, garlic, and lemon juice and mix thoroughly.
Combine the olive oil and vegetable oil in a deep frying pan. Allow the oil to warm up to frying temperature at medium-high heat. Check the pan often to make the olive oil doesn't burn. Adjust the heat level accordingly.
In a shallow bowl, mix together the flour, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon black pepper, onion powder, and cayenne pepper. Place the beaten eggs in a another shallow bowl, and the crushed pretzels into a final shallow bowl.
Dip each slice of tomato into the eggs, then the flower, back into the eggs, and then into the crushed pretzels. Fry tomatoes on each side until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Place tomatoes on a plate covered with paper towels to drain. Serve immediately.
