Fried Green Tomatoes

Do you like fried green tomatoes? They are wonderful, breaded and fried light and crispy. The photo was taken from my summer garden a few years ago. I only grew two tomatoes that year. So I buy them in the store now. They are very easy to fry if you want to try them.

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 pound green tomatoes, sliced 1/2 inch thick
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • kosher salt

Place the flour, eggs, and cornmeal in 3 separate bowls. Dip the tomatoes first in the flour, then in the eggs (letting any excess drip off), and then in the cornmeal, pressing gently to help it stick.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium to high heat. Cook the tomatoes until golden, one to two minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate. Season with ½ teaspoon salt before serving

There was also a movie called Fried Green Tomatoes. It was very good. Kathy Bates and Jessica Tandy starred in the movie. You should watch it one day.
