In the South, just about every good dish is fried - chicken, steak, pickles, and even green tomatoes! Here is a great dish for green tomatoes that is NOT fried, but has zesty Southern flavors. The Cajun Blend, Lemon Pepper, and Garlic Powder combine to give the green tomatoes an incredible flavor. Enjoy this as a terrific summer side dish or as a meal. It's so good, you may start loving green tomatoes as much as the red ones!

4 - 5 Green Tomatoes, sliced 1/4 inch thick
1/2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
Pepper, to taste
2 tsp Cajun Blend

Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat with cooking spray, a 9x13 inch baking pan. Layer sliced tomatoes on the bottom of the prepared pan. Top tomatoes with half of each: sugar, salt, pepper, Cajun Blend, Garlic, and Lemon Pepper. Sprinkle over the seasoned tomatoes, half the onions and half of the cheese.
