Fried Green Tomatoes

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs, beaten
1 log herbed goat cheese by Natural and Kosher
1 cup panko bread crumbs
¼ cup parmesan cheese grated by Natural and Kosher
4-6 green tomatoes, sliced 1/2 inch thick
1/2 cup canola oil

Place the flour, eggs, and panko bread crumbs mixed with parmesan, in 3 separate shallow bowls.

Pat each slice of the tomato dry to remove any moisture.

Spread a half a tablespoon of goat cheese over one slice of tomato.

Dip the tomato/goat cheese slice, first in the flour, then in the eggs (letting any excess drip off), then the panko-cheese mixture, pressing gently to help it adhere.

Set aside each crumbed tomato slice on a tray lined with parchment paper and continue to batter up the rest of the tomatoes.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, cook the tomatoes until golden, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel–lined plate.

Serve immediately.
