20 minutes
  1. Slice green tomatoes into 1/4 inch slices. Season with salt and pepper. Place a Tablespoon of Palmetto Cheese on a slice of tomato, top cheese with another slice of tomato and slightly press together. Yield for this recipe will depend on how large your tomato is and how thinly you slice the tomatoes. The recipe can be easily increased.
  1. Set up three bowls: one with flour, one with a beaten egg, and one with a sleeve of finely crushed Ritz crackers.
  2. Dredge your stuffed green tomato slices in flour, be sure to coat all sides. Shake off the excess. Dip both sides of the floured tomato in the egg. Now dip the tomato in your Ritz cracker crumbs and coat all sides.
  3. If you would like a thicker breading, simply repeat the process starting with the flour.
  1. Place 3 cups of oil into a pan. Bring oil to a temperature of 350 degrees.
  2. Place tomatoes into the hot oil gently. When the breading has turned golden brown, carefully flip the tomato over and brown the other side.
  3. Remove from the oil and place on a paper towel to soak up any excess oil.
