“Cheapest way to make fried green tomatoes that are crunchy on the outside, and taste like apple pie on the inside. Great side-dish for any meal!”

Directions

  1. Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  2. Place cornmeal in a bowl; dip and coat each tomato slice until thoroughly coated.
  3. Place coated tomato slices side by side in the hot oil; fry until coating is browned and crusty, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Remove with a slotted spoon and transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Season with salt and black pepper. Repeat with remaining tomato slices.

Very good starting point for Fried Green Tomatoes. I like my breading to have a bit more seasoning. But I really did enjoy this recipe, I made it just as the recipe directed. The end result was good.

Giving this 5 stars because, it is easy to make, minimal ingredients and still tasty. A perfect start recipe for those who have never made fried green tomatoes before. Leaves tons of room for making this recipe your own! As a southern lady I have made many batches of fried green tomatoes, and this is certainly one of the best basic/start ones I have come across. Grandma would be proud.
