Fried green tomatoes question

No one laugh, please!!!
I want to try making fried green tomatos. Are these just tomatos that are unripe, or are we talking about a certain type of tomato? Also, anyone have a recipe???? Thanks, Deb

There are no silly questions!!!! Yes, they are just unripe regular tomatoes. I like to coat mine with a combination of cornmeal and flour and in the egg mixture I throw in some healthy doeses of Chilula hot sauce or your favorite if you have one. As soon as they are done and you place them on a paper towel be sure and sprinkle with some kosher salt. The salt will melt into the hot tomatoes. Be sure and turn them only once so as to maintain a crunchy coating .

Fried Green Tomatoes are a regular dinnerplate companion here as the weather starts cooling & I still have unripe tomatoes in the garden.

As others have said - they're simplicity itself. Just seasoned flour &/or cornmeal or a mix. Slice, dip, saute in your fat of choice - olive oil, butter, bacon drippings, whatever - until tender. Delicious.

I usually serve them as a side veggie to sauteed catfish.

I'm glad you asked, exactly150. I'd never have thought of asking but kitchenelf and BreezyCooking's recipes sound delicious. I'll have to give them a go. I bet your recipe is good too, jkath, just haven't clicked on the link yet.

I just love tomatoes. Just as well they're good for you. Shame I love chocolate too.

Oh - & don't overlook fried - actually sauteed - slices of green or firm red tomatoes as accompaniments to breakfast eggs. You don't even have to flour them. I often add them to plates of eggs or alongside an omelette. Sometimes I sprinkle a little grated parmesan or other cheese on top.

Oh wow............your post was like a slap in my head. I love Fried Green Tomatoes and I have quite a few out there on the vine right now and I haven't even thought of it. THANKS!!!!!

I just dip mine in beaten egg then flour and fry in vegetable oil. I make sure I salt and pepper the eggs and flour. Then when they come out I drain them on paper towels and hit them with more salt while their hot.

I LOVE them coated in a really light tempura, and fried...serve with a little basil and lemon juice, salt, and alot of fresh cracked black pepper.

Well after posting I ran out to the garden and I'm now enjoying a plate of these. This is one of those things that I love about summer.

I got to thinking about a recipe I found in a cookbook this winter and I plan to try this one out next: If you want the exact recipe PM me and I'll send it to ya.

Uses yellow cornmeal, flour, sugar, seasoned salt, cayenne pepper, pepper and you fry it either in bacon drippings or veg. shortening.

I just thought of something else that might be good trying out too. Panko Breading. I bet that'd be really good too and light.
