“This recipe comes from my mom and they are, hands down, the best fried green tomatoes. She makes these every summer with fresh tomatoes from her garden. My sister begs her to make them for her as soon as she sees tomatoes growing big and green on the vines. While most recipes call for breadcrumbs and oil, this one calls for flour and has you fry the tomatoes in butter, which helps give these an incredible flavor.”

Directions

  1. Season each tomato slice with sugar, salt, and pepper.
  2. Beat milk and eggs together in a bowl. Pour flour into another bowl.
  3. Gently press each tomato slice into flour to coat; shake off the excess flour. Dip tomato slices into egg mixture, then press again into flour. Place breaded tomato slices onto a plate while breading the rest; do not stack.
  4. Melt 1/2 cup butter in a large pan over medium heat. Place tomato slices in melted butter and cook until golden brown on one side, 5 to 7 minutes. Flip and cook on the other side until golden brown. Add more butter as need while frying.

Wow- these are delicious! I left out the sugar, and subbed in 1/4 cup of cornmeal for the flour to give it some crunch.

NICE! This is a very nice recipe for fried green tomatoes. I mixed the sugar, salt, and pepper in a bowl then seasoned the tomatoes. I would have liked to have seen the flour stick better to the tomatoes but it could have been the type tomato I used had a smoother skin. This makes a nice side vegetable for seafood. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Brandilynn7!

I absolutely LOVED these. My first experience with fried green tomatoes. I did coat them in bread crumbs, deep fried them in oil, and sprinkled them with course salt after taking them from the fryer.
