Need green tomato recipes

I just know we're gonna get a frost before all my tomatoes ripen - we planted too late. Besides frying them (which I love) what else have you guys done with green tomatoes?

Too funny. My fried green tomatoes taste pretty much like fried eggplant - maybe with a little more tartness.

green tomato poundcake

Ingredients:
1/3 cup sultanas (golden raisins)
1/4 cup dark rum
1 large green tomato (8 oz.), cored, halved, seeded, and diced
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. butter for pan
6 large egg yolks
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
2 tbs. orange zest
1/2 cup walnut halves, toasted

Instructions:
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F and butter a 4-inch by 8-inch loaf pan. Pour the rum over the raisins in a small bowl and set aside for at least 15 minutes. Prepare the tomato, put the dice into a large sieve, sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt, toss gently, and let drain. In a small bowl, beat the egg yolks until thick and lemon-colored. Place 2 cups of the flour and remaining salt in a large bowl, make a well, put the sugar and butter in the middle, and with your fingers or the paddle attachment of your mixer work those ingredients well into the flour. Add the egg yolks (reserving a bit for glaze), raisins, rum, and orange zest and work in gently until the dough is smooth, if stiff. Toss the drained tomato with the remaining 1/4 cup flour and gently work it, along with the walnuts, into the dough. Pat the dough into the cake pan and press out to the edges of the pan. Brush the top with the reserved egg yolk. You can make a simple design in the top of the cake with a fork or the back of a knife if you like. Bake for 1-1/2 hours or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before removing from the pan.

Here are 3 recipes from my files - they all sound delicious.

FRIED GREEN TOMATO "BLT"

Great reviews!

2 cups loosely packed fresh basil leaves
1 1/4 cups mayonnaise
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

18 1/8-inch-thick slices pancetta*

18 1/4-inch-thick slices green tomatoes (about 6 tomatoes)
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
3 large eggs, beaten to blend
1 cup olive oil

6 1/4-inch-thick slices red tomatoes (about 2 tomatoes)
6 1/4-inch-thick slices yellow tomatoes (about 2 tomatoes)
1 1/2 cups thinly sliced arugula

Puree basil, 1/4 cup mayonnaise, lemon juice, and mustard in processor until smooth. Transfer to small bowl; mix in remaining 1 cup mayonnaise and season to taste with salt and pepper. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)

Preheat oven to 350°F. Arrange pancetta in single layer on rimmed baking sheet. Cook until pancetta is just crisp, about 15 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Reduce oven temperature to 200°F.

Sprinkle all green tomato slices with salt and pepper. Place 1/2 cup flour in shallow bowl. Mix remaining 1/2 cup flour with cornmeal in another shallow bowl to blend. Working with 1 green tomato slice at a time, coat with flour, then egg, then flour-cornmeal mixture. Transfer to baking sheet. Line second baking sheet with paper towels. Heat oil in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, fry green tomatoes until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Using slotted spoon, transfer to prepared baking sheet; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Keep warm in oven.

Sprinkle red and yellow tomatoes with salt and pepper. Place 1 fried green tomato slice on each of 6 plates. Spread each with 1 teaspoon basil mayonnaise, then top with 2 tablespoons arugula, 1 slice pancetta, 1 slice red tomato, another fried green tomato, 1 slice yellow tomato, pancetta, and another 2 tablespoons arugula. Spoon 1 teaspoon mayonnaise over arugula, then top with remaining fried green tomatoes. Spoon 1 teaspoon mayonnaise atop green tomato. Finish with remaining pancetta and serve.

Market Tip: Look for green tomatoes at your local farmers' market or a specialty foods store, or order them from Melissa's (800-588-0151; www.melissas.com).

*Pancetta, Italian bacon cured in salt, is available at Italian markets and some specialty food stores and supermarkets.

Makes 6 servings.

HI,

Paula Deen used fried green tomatoes as the base for Eggs Benedict (instead of English Muffins) on her show some time ago. I tried it and it's delicious.

Enjoy :o

THAT sounds good. I get the recipe from that board to see how she prepared the tomatoes. It's almost October and I've only gotten 4 or 5 red tomatoes from 4 plants. The cherry tomatoes did well, though.

Thanks Julie and chief - they sound incredible. For now I'll have to print and file them since we had our frost and the plants are not producing anymore this season!

Your very welcome. We had a frost here this past week so no more new tomatoes green or otherwise. We took the green ones that were left and wrapped them in newspaper and keep them in the garage and according to the guy on the radio we should still have our own tomatoes at Thanksgiving. But because they couldn't have any blemishes on them or bruises etc. That didn't leave too many. but we'll see if he was right. I'll keep checking them to make sure I don't end up with a paper full of moldy mush.

I hope the recipes work out for you next year.
