Gluten Free "Not Fried" Green Tomatoes

I love green tomato season! I wanted to make Fried Green Tomatoes and stick them on a club sandwich, but then I really didn't want to fry them. Plus I needed them gluten free. These turned out just delicious!!
I only did one LARGE green tomato, for 5 slices (1 for each sandwich). If you are wanting to make a bigger batch, it is easy to adjust accordingly. Or slice them thick and make an awesome Green Tomato Veggie Burger!

1 Large Green Tomato

1 cup gluten free bread crumbs (I toasted up an Udi's GF bagel and stuck it in my vitamix for my crumbs)

1 cup plain yogurt(Greek is best, but regular works fine too)
1 egg

1/2 cup sorghum flour
1/4 cup cornmeal
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400 and= grease a baking sheet generously with cooking spray or olive oil

Slice your tomato into 4-5 slices discarding the ends
(I didn't get any pictures of the tomato slices, my camera lens is being a pain!! My slices were pretty thick, you can go thinner if you like!)

In one shallow dish place the bread crumbs.

In another dish combine the yogurt and egg, mix well.

In yet another dish combine flour, cornmeal, garlic, salt and pepper

Dip each slice in flour mixture, dusting well
Then dip in yogurt mixture, tapping to remove excess
Finally dip it in bread crumbs pressing gently to make them adhere.

Place them on greased baking sheet and spray each one lightly with cooking spray.

Bake for 7-10 minutes until it is crisping up.
Flip gently and bake another 7-10 minutes until golden brown.

Sprinkle with a touch of salt and serve......or continue on to make sandwiches....

I was going to make a batch of savory waffles ,but it turns out my kids were not going to be home for for just the hubs and I,  I used sourdough, of course you could use any kind of bread you want

Sliced Turkey
Bacon, Cooked Crisp
Cheese ( I used Havarti)
Lemon-Basil Mayo
