Please Share Y'all!

In this post I’m sharing a delicious Fried Green Tomatoes Recipe.

Fried green tomatoes are a popular Southern dish. Delicious thick slices of green tomatoes dredged and fried crispy, served along with dipping sauces.

You’ll find this on menus of restaurants across the country but it’s so easy to make at home.

Southern Fried Green Tomatoes

Ingredients:

  • 1 c All Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 c All Purpose Corn Meal
  • Paprika
  • Onion Powder
  • Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt (or to taste)
  • Cracked Black Pepper
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 Egg
  • Buttermilk
  • Vegetable Oil for frying
 

Easy Fried Green Tomatoes

Start by slicing your green tomatoes into 1/4 inch slices. Lay the tomato slices out on a plate covered with a paper towel and sprinkle with salt. Let stand for 15 to 30 minutes to remove the excess water.

 

Blot the tomatoes and you’re ready to prepare for frying. Preheat the vegetable oil in a skillet on medium high heat.

Mix the flour, corn meal, and seasonings together in a bowl. In a separate bowl whisk the buttermilk and egg together. Take each slice of tomato and cover with the dry mixture, then dip in the wet mixture, then back and cover with the dry mixture.

Add each dredged slice to the heated oil and fry. Flip to ensure each side is a golden brown.

Remove the tomato slices to a plate lined with a paper towel or a cooling rack to remove excess oil. Enjoy as they are or with your favorite dipping sauce, such as this Red Remoulade Sauce.
