When it come to yummy in your tummy Southern comfort food nothing beats fried green tomatoes. I love friend green tomatoes. I remember my granny cooking up a mess, as she called it. I'd watch her diligently, trying to learn her secret for yummy fried green tomatoes.
Her secret was seasoning salt added to the cornmeal. I still use seasoning salt, but today I'm sassing my fried green tomatoes up a bit with Kay's Naturals High Protein Pretzel Breading in Parmesan Flavor.
All of the items are Gluten Free & High Protein. This is a great way to try out brand new breading, with 30% less fat up-take than traditional breading.
I love Parmesan and when I was offered the opportunity to review Kay's Naturals, I was thrilled when I received the pretzel breading. I wasn't sure how I would use this flavor, then I heard my granny's sweet Southern voice telling me add a little sass to fried green tomatoes. Parmesan Encrusted Fried Green Tomatoes was born y'all!
