Fried Green Tomatoes Tutorial
Fried Green Tomatoes
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
Slice the tomatoes in 1/4 inch slices.
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.
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
