Fried Green Tomatoes

October 28, 2011

Fried Green Tomatoes – a Southern food I grew to love as a youngster.

Slice tomatoes that are beginning to turn but not yet ripe into thick slices; each tomato (depending on size) should yield 3-4 slices

Prepare flour mixture (white or whole wheat) for dusting tomatoes by adding salt & pepper (to taste), one teaspoon baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon paprika to 1 cup flour. Then fill skillet with 1 1/2 to 2 inches of good cooking oil and bring skillet temperature to 300-350 degrees (med-high setting)

after dusting tomatoes in flour mixture fry in hot oil until brown on both sides

Remove from skillet and drain on paper towels to remove excess oil; sprinkle with a good hard cheese (optional) Note: Looks are deceiving-fried tomatoes are excellent on toast!

What more can I say! Fried green tomatoes (which, are not totally green); a piece of toast; homemade applesauce; a good cup of coffee is my Southern Comfort food! This was my lunch yesterday and it was yummy.

Fried Green Tomatoes on toast! I like nothing better than fried green tomatoes on dry toast ...

...the proof is in the crumbs!
