Instructions:

1. Prepare the Green Tomatoes:
  • Slice the green tomatoes into rounds, approximately 1/4 inch (0.6 cm) thick. Place them on a paper towel-lined tray to remove excess moisture.
2. Prepare the Breading:
  • In a shallow bowl, combine almond flour, grated Parmesan cheese, crushed pork rinds, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper. Mix well.
3. Whisk the Eggs:
  • In another bowl, whisk together the eggs and heavy cream to create an egg wash.

4. Bread the Tomato Slices:

  • Dip each tomato slice into the egg wash, allowing any excess to drip off.
  • Coat the tomato slice in the breading mixture, ensuring it’s fully covered. Press the breading onto the tomato slice to make it adhere.
5. Heat the Cooking Oil:
  • In a skillet, heat cooking oil over medium-high heat. You’ll need enough oil to cover the bottom of the skillet to a depth of around 1/4 inch (0.6 cm).
6. Fry the Tomatoes:
  • Carefully place the breaded tomato slices in the hot oil. Fry for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until they turn golden brown and crispy.
7. Drain and Serve:
  • Remove the fried green tomatoes from the skillet and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil.
8. Serve:
  • Serve your Keto Fried Green Tomatoes while they’re hot and crispy. They’re great as an appetizer or side dish.
  • Optionally, serve with a keto-friendly dipping sauce like ranch dressing.
