Making Fried Green Tomatoes in Florida

Living in Florida, are growing season is almost done. Today, my husband was out in the garden and said, I have several green tomatoes, can you make me fried green tomatoes? 

I am not a tomato fan, but I am willing to make them for him. Are you a tomato fan?

I am sure there are tons of recipes for fried green tomatoes, but most involve dipping the tomatoes into flour, then egg and then a bread crumb mixture.

Then fry them until they are golden. One large tomato yielded 6 slices. He likes them thin sliced and they seem to cook better. My husband was in heaven.

  2. Whisk egg and milk together in a medium-size bowl. Scoop flour onto a plate.
  3. Mix cornmeal, bread crumbs and salt and pepper on another plate. Dip tomatoes into flour to coat. Then dip the tomatoes into milk and egg mixture. Dredge in breadcrumbs to completely coat.
  4. In a large skillet, pour vegetable oil (enough so that there is 1/2 inch of oil in the pan) and heat over a medium heat. Place tomatoes into the frying pan in batches of 4 or 5, depending on the size of your skillet. Do not crowd the tomatoes, they should not touch each other. When the tomatoes are browned, flip and fry them on the other side. Drain them on paper towels.
