Fried Green Tomatoes

Are as we call them in the South fried green maters. Fried Green Tomatoes really became quite popular after the movie “Fried Green Tomatoes” who can forget that classic? But this recipe is as old south as it gets. I have saw many recipes over the years that have all kinds of spices included but the real version only has salt and pepper. For a breakfast dish you add some gravy on top of them. This is a tangy taste that people just seem to love.

3 large green tomatoes
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
sunflower oil for frying

1. In a saute pan on medium head add enough oil for frying.

2. In a medium sized bowl add flour, cornmeal, salt and pepper, mix well. Slice tomatoes 1/2 inch thick and rotate in flour mixture, generously covering. Fry tomatoes on each side until golden. Drain on a paper towel.

Yields: 4 servings

Where are you at? I am in Saudi and got some :) So I am sure you can. Actually my husband dug through the good ones to find these for me. They are tart and so good and if my Saudi husband liked them (a man who does not like Southern food) I am sure more people will :), lol..
