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!
