Fried Green Tomatoes Tutorial

This year we planted tomatoes for the first time ever. We are still getting the hang of it and have had several branches break under the weight of the tomatoes. So, we decided to take those broken branches and fry up those green tomatoes. Also, in place of the salt, pepper, flour, and cornmeal, I've just used a bag of Chicken Fry- which is a seasoned flour/cornmeal mixture used for fried chicken. It's delicious, too.

Fried Green Tomatoes

Ingredients

4-5 large tomatoes (but really, you can only fry up as many or as few as you want)
1 egg, beaten
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup self-rising white cornmeal mix
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil

Step 1

Slice the tomatoes in 1/4 inch slices.

Step 2

Heat the oil until hot but not smoking. Combine the flour, cornmeal, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Dip each tomato slice in the egg and coat with the seasoned flour mixture. Place the tomato slices on a baking sheet while the oil heats up.

Step 3


Once oil is hot, drop the slices in one by one, cook for 2 minutes on each side until golden brown. Let fried slices drain on a paper towel lined plate. Serve warm, as is or with ketchup

I can remember my mother making these for me when I was a little girl. I can't wait to fry up some myself. Thank you for sharing with us. :)
