Fried Green Tomatoes recipe
Fried Green Tomatoes recipe…
- 2 medium size green tomatoes, sliced 1/2 inch thick
- 1/2 cup corn meal
- 1/4 cup flour
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- good pinch of pepper
- 1 egg, beaten with 1-2 tablespoons of milk
- a little oil for frying
Prep your area for dredging the tomatoes. One bowl for the egg/milk dip. One plate for the dry mix (corn meal, flour, salt and pepper). One large plate for prepped tomatoes.
Dip the tomato slice in the egg/milk and completely coat. Move to the dry mix plate and coat both sides and edges of the slice. Set aside on last plate. Repeat until all is coated.
Fry the tomatoes for 2-3 minutes on each side, long enough to get a golden crispy crust.
Using tongs, move crispy fried green tomatoes to a plate lined with a paper towel. As soon as they’re cool enough to hold, they’re cool enough to EAT! They’re also very good at room temperature.
