Step 4: Hello, panko! This breadcrumb mix is the last layer. Once you've coated your slices, add them to a wax paper-lined baking sheet and chill them in the freezer for at least 12 hours. This allows the layers to properly set before frying.


Step 5: Once chilled, fry your tomatoes for five to six minutes in canola oil and serve.
