Oven Fried Green Tomatoes
Yields 4 servings
Adapted from a recipe from Majestic Nursery & Farms
-3 tablespoons butter
-1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper
-1 cup self rising flour
-2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
-1 teaspoon cajun seasoning
-2 cups thinly sliced (about 1/4-inch thick) green tomatoes, or as many as you can fit comfortably in your iron skillet
Preheat oven, with iron skillet in it, to 400 degrees F for about 20 minutes (skillet needs to be hot all the way through).
Take the skillet out of the oven and melt the butter in the skillet. Mix in half the salt and pepper.
Combine remaining ingredients except tomatoes, stirring so all ingredients are evenly distributed. Dip the tomatoes in the flour mixture until coated well on both sides.
Lay the tomatoes in the skillet and sprinkle the rest of the salt and pepper over the top.
Bake until tops are lightly browned, about 8 to 12 minutes. Serve immediately while still warm.
