Baked Fried Tomatoes with Parmesan


  • 1 large tomato, sliced thick

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1 cup Italian breadcrumbs

  • Cooking spray

  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.

Cut tomato into thick slices and season with salt and pepper.

In a small bowl, whisk eggs and water. Pour breadcrumbs onto a large dish.

One at a time, dip the tomatoes into the egg mixture and then into the breadcrumbs, allowing the excess to drip off. Place each tomato onto the baking sheet.

Once all tomatoes are coated and on the baking sheet, lightly spray the top of each tomato with cooking spray.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, flipping half way through. After you flip the tomatoes, top each with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese. Continue cooking until done or until cheese is melted and tomatoes are crispy.
