Fried Green Tomatoes. One of the dishes folks think about when they think about southern cooking. Whenever I come across them on a menu, I must order them. Now I have to be honest, I do not like fried red tomatoes, but I do like fried green tomatoes. It may have to do with the texture.

As my time living in the south comes to end after living in Kentucky and North Carolina, I am trying to make dishes I have become accustomed to when eating out. Fried green tomatoes are one of the dishes. It was time to try.

We stopped at a roadside produce stand. They had wonderful veggies including green tomatoes. I could not pass on them. I only picked up one to try. I asked the girl working what was her suggestion as to make them. She shared that her boyfriend’s mom just soaks the green tomato slices in egg then in flour and fry. That is it.

Fried Green Tomato

Basically, there is no recipe. It is a recipe done was with a little bit of this and that. Start off with a green tomato. It is important that is firm. Slice 1/8 – 1/4 inch. Beat an egg. Coat the slices in egg and let soak for a couple of minutes then dredge it in flour that has been seasoned with Jane’s Krazy Salt or just salt and pepper. Heat olive oil a frying pan over medium-high heat. Fry the tomatoes 5-9 minutes each side. Serve with a side of ranch dressing.

Need other sides? I have quite a few here.
