Fried Green Tomatoes

Fried Green Tomatoes

We have been wanting to try fried green tomatoes for years now.  I had been eyeing some green tomatoes at the farmers market, and then a friend of mine offered a bunch from her garden, so we decided to make a batch.

I love how pretty the tomatoes are!

Sliced Green Tomatoes

Start by slicing your green tomatoes.  They stay pretty firm even when fried, so I sliced them thick, but they didn’t have to be overly thick.

Sliced Green Tomatoes

First, we dipped the tomato slices in flour.

Then we dipped them in a mixture of half egg, half milk.

Finally, we dipped in a breadcrumb mixture.  We actually tried two different mixtures – one with breadcrumbs, and a different one using a mix of panko crumbs and nutritional yeast.

We prepared a big batch of tomato slices to be fried.

Fried Green Tomatoes Breading

We heated up oil in a skillet, and fried the battered tomatoes, turning as needed.  The slices floated in the oil, so they needed to be flipped, and you’ll need a decent amount of oil.

I tried both ranch dressing and sour cream with my fried green tomatoes.  It was just the right balance in contrast with the acidity of the tomatoes.  These are so delicious!

    This seems like a tasty and different recipe for me to try! I would enjoy this and I would make a tomato sauce dip with it.

    I haven’t had this in so long! My parents grew up in North Carolina and it seems that’s all we ate every Autumn!

    I have never had these before, but they look so good. There is nothing like tomatoes straight from the garden.

    When I was a child I remember my mom making and eating these. I tried them on several occasions but never did like the. I think I need to try them again. The last time I tried them was over 40 years ago. I am sure my palate has changed since then. I think I will go out to the garden tomorrow and pick one and try it.

    (Fried Green Tomatoes) My brothers and I just made a big batch of these over the Labor Day weekend when we were together. The tomatoes were from my garden that I grew over the summer, and they turned out so good too.
