Tip and Recipe Fried Green Tomatoes

Here is a quick tip that you may not need just yet but place it in a great place so when you get ready to fry those early green tomatoes.

Tip: slightly salt the tomatoes to help dry up the moisture of the tomato before breading. This will help the breading stay on the tomato slice to fry and get that lovely crispy


- 4 green tomatoes, thickly sliced
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup milk
Salt and pepper, to taste
Oil, for frying

Preheat oven to 200ºF.
Mix flour, corn meal, salt and pepper in a small bowl. In a separate bowl, beat egg and milk until combined.
Place a frying pan over medium heat. Add enough oil to the pan to cover the bottom 1/4" inch deep. (If using an electric frying pan, heat the oil to 350ºF to 375ºF.)
Dip sliced tomato into egg mixture covering both sides; then dip sliced tomato into flour mixture covering both sides.
Place prepared tomato into preheated frying pan. Cook each side of the tomato until golden brown and crusty. Keep fried tomatoes in preheated oven until ready to serve.
