Paleo Fried Green Tomatoes, A Southern Breakfast

This recipe for Paleo Fried Green Tomatoes is an old Southern classic, made with Paleo Breadcrumbs and served baked to crispy, topped with cilantro and our Paleo Remoulade Sauce! I didn’t grow up with them, but they are very popular here and Angel and I enjoy them. The goal here is to brown the outside while cooking the inside, but not to mush. The texture of these is juuuuust cooked through…like al dente. Or at least, that is what you’ll get cooking it by the instructions below. If you want them smushy, just turn the heat down a little and leave them in longer. Oh, and I highly recommend the sauce.

Well, in 3 hours, we’ll know if the world is ending. I’ll be cooking a Paleo Christmas Ham for the website, so at least we’ll go down with champagne and a delicious meal! Though I really doubt it. Really, I’m just excited about Christmas. All but 3 of my presents are in, and I’m getting excited about it again. Wrapped and ready to go!

Recipe: Paleo Fried Green Tomatoes



  • Turn the oven to broil (500 degrees Fahrenheit, with heat from the top).
  • Slice the tomatoes about 1/4 “ slices, discarding the stem.
  • In one bowl, whisk together the egg and coconut milk. In another bowl, combine the Paleo Breadcrumbs ingredients.
  • Dip the tomato slices in the egg mixture, then dredge them in the Paleo Breadcrumbs and coat each side.
  • Place the slices onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. If you don’t have any, grease it a little, as you don’t want to have to peel them off…the breading doesn’t stay on that well if they stick. Combine the oils and drizzle over the tomatoes.
  • Broil on the middle rack for 5-6 minutes, or until browned, then flip and bake for another 5-6 minutes or until browned.
  • You can pan fry these as well. Heat 3-4 Tbsp oil in a pan over medium-high heat and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side. Garnish with diced tomatoes, Paleo Remoulade Sauce and chopped cilantro.
  • This recipe is Vegetarian! It can easily be made Vegan if you omit the Paleo Remoulade Sauce and eggs!
