Expert Tips

These taste great with cayenne hot sauce.

The first time I heard about fried green tomatoes, I must confess I was a bit skeptical. But the moment I placed a slice in my mouth and tasted the warm breading followed by its delicious tartness, I was hooked! Fried green tomatoes make a great entrée or appetizer, too.

Directions

  • 1 Slice the tomatoes into 1/2-inch slices and remove ends. Sprinkle slices with salt and let sit for a few minutes.
  • 2 Place egg and milk in a bowl and whisk until combined.
  • 3 In a separate bowl mix flour and pepper seasoning.
  • 4 In a third bowl, mix breadcrumbs and cornmeal.
  • 5 Heat oil in skillet on low-medium heat. Dip green tomato slice in flour and seasoning mixture, then in egg and milk mixture and finally in breadcrumb and cornmeal mixture.
  • 6 Fry the green tomato slice for approximately 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Flip to fry the other side for another 2-3 minutes.
  • 7 Repeat with all tomato slices.
  • 8 Serve immediately.
