Now that I’m in the South, it’s my goal to try all the southern dishes. So when Community member Suzanne Miller requested this one, I was all in! Well, mostly in. I was worried about finding the green tomatoes (for good reason), but in the end we got those tomatoes and WOW. If you haven’t had green tomatoes, you are missing out. This needs to be something that everyone eats everywhere, not just in the South!

Thank you Suzanne Miller for requesting this one!

Air Fried Green Tomatoes

(original recipe from Down Home with the Neelys)

Ingredients for Tomatoes:

  • 4 green tomatoes, cut into ¼ inch rings
  • Salt and pepper
  • ¾ cup flour (GF is fine)
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 ½ cups panko bread crumbs (GF is fine)
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • Pinch paprika

Ingredients for dipping sauce:

  • 1 cup apple cider (NOT VINEGAR)
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • ¾  cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons BBQ sauce
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons of dried chives


  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the apple cider and brown sugar. Allow to reduce until thick and syrupy. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Once cool, whisk together the buttermilk, mayonnaise, BBQ sauce and lime juice. Add in the dried chives and the apple cider syrup. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour for best flavor.
  2. Preheat the air fryer at 400°F for 5 minutes.
  3. Season tomatoes, on both sides, with salt and pepper. 
  4. Place flour and garlic powder in a shallow dish. 
  5. In a second dish, beat eggs with the milk. 
  6. In a third dish, mix bread crumbs with cayenne and paprika. 
  7. Dredge tomatoes through the flour, then the eggs, and then through the bread crumbs. 
  8. Place on the air fryer tray and air fry for 8-10 minutes (flipping in the middle for even browning).
  9. Serve with Buttermilk Dipping Sauce.
