You might remember this breading from the original Cravings. A spicy, tangy blend of grated parmesan and toasty panko crumbs…oh baby. If you can find some firm green tomatoes (an unripe red tomato, not a green heirloom tomato!) in your neck of the woods, these guys make theeeeee perfect snack. Honestly I have yet to try a fried or baked green tomato where the breading sticks and crisps quite as well as this.

The sauce is…I don’t have a name for it. It’s a beautiful hybrid of some sort of BBQ ranch and the horseradishy bloomin’ onion dip.
