Recipe For Fried Green Tomatoes

Growing up in the country, my Mama had a wonderful recipe for fried green tomatoes. These are great on top of hamburgers too!

Mama would start with green tomatoes right out of the garden and within a few minutes she'd whip up a great snack or a wonderful side dish!

fried green tomatoes




Here's what you'll need:


4 large green tomatoes
1/2 cup of self-rising cornmeal
1/2 cup of plain bread crumbs
1 teaspoon of kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
2 eggs
1/4 cup of milk
bacon drippings for frying, if you don't have bacon drippings you can use shortening or a combination of the two.


Here's what you do:



In a large dish, mix together the self-rising cornmeal, bread crumbs, salt and pepper.



In a separate bowl, scramble together the eggs and milk.



Heat the shortening and/or bacon drippings in a large skillet.



Slice the green tomatoes about 1/4 of an inch thick. Dip in the egg mixture ad then into the cornmeal mixture. Shake off excess.



Fry the green tomatoes in hot shortening until crisp. Turn over and fry until crisp on the other side.



Drain on paper towels.



Enjoy your green fried tomatoes!
