I've never tried fried tomatoes, as I always assumed they had to be green!

All our poor tomato plants were destroyed in the hail storm yesterday afternoon.

Paul needs to go buy some more and replant.

any tips on frying them? I have to admit that my fried tomatoes are hit and miss, so it my fried eggplant. Sometimes they come out too soft and greasy.

I love fried green tomatoes.
I just use the same recipe that luvs posted except
I fry them in olive oil, not shortening.

I've always wanted to try fried green tomatoes. I always say I will make them with the green tomatoes at the end of the summer, but I never end up frying the, Oh well, maybe this year!

mellie, for green tomatoes, dipping them in egg again after flouring them and them dipping them into cornmeal makes for a very crunchy coating.
