Fried Green Tomatoes Recipe

Fried Green Tomatoes is more than just a popular movie. It’s a common staple in southern dishes. There’s something so tasty about taking an ordinary tomato and combining it with spices, flour and oil.

It goes without saying that it’s probably not the best idea to fry up tomatoes every time you bring them home from the store. But, sometimes it’s worth it to mix it up a little, and this recipe certainly does that. After all, one can easily tire of the same old tomato sandwiches. However, this recipe takes the ordinary and makes is extraordinary.

  1. Beat the eggs with a fork, and set aside.
  2. Slice the tomatoes in 1-inch slices (or around that—it doesn’t have to be exact). As long as they are close to the same size, the slices will cook evenly.
  3. Combine the bread crumbs and flour in a medium size bowl.
  4. Add the milk to the beaten eggs.
  5. Dip the tomato slices into the milk and egg mixture.
  6. Dredge the slices in the flour/bread crumb mixture.
  7. Add 2 to 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil into a greased pan. Heat the oil over medium high heat.
  8. When the pan begins to sizzle, carefully add tomato slices. Fry the slices for four to five minutes on each side, or until they begin to brown.
