My first… attempt at Fried Green Tomatoes
With the weather vascillating between hot, cold, warm, chilly, and hot I was getting awfully worried that my tomatoes were going to all die without achieving their full potential. Thus, I opted to pluck a few to save them from premature death, and make some fried green tomatoes.
There are only a few simple ingredients and the steps are easy to follow:
Look at these beauties…
After a thorough washing it was time for the slicing
In a medium-sized bowl whisk two large eggs and one cup of milk
Scoop 1 cup all-purpose flour onto a plate
On a separate plate mix cornmeal, bread crumbs, salt and pepper…
Dip the tomatoes in the flour to coat
Next, dredge in egg and milk mixture
After the dredgin’ dip coat the tomato in breadcumbs
In a large skillet, pour 1/4 to 1/2 inch vegetable oil and heat over medium heat. Once the oil is hot place tomatoes in the frying pan; about 4 to 5 at a time.
Make sure the tomatoes don’t touch
Once the tomatoes are browned, flip and fry them on the other side. Remove from skillet and place on a towel
This experiment made my kitchen smell INCREDIBLE but I was still nervous to try them. After one bite the nervousness fell to the wayside and the tastebuds through a party in my mouth. Add a little hot sauce and you’ve got a dance!!! You SERIOUSLY have to try these, they are divine!
