Fried Green Tomatoes


Love, love, love Fried Green Tomatoes, however I have never made them before! Today, I faced my fears of frying and pulled out the Fry Baby, heated vegetable oil to 375 and got to frying!  I sliced the tomatoes a little thick, actually too thick! Poured buttermilk on top and then tossed with corn meal, flour and spices. Fried them for apx 6 mins each.


All measurements are approximate, as I didn’t really measure!

1 cup corn meal

2 T flour

garlic powder, salt, pepper, paprika

4 springs of fresh thyme

Pour buttermilk on top of tomatoes, lightly toss tomatoes in corn meal mix and drop in hot oil. Cook apx 6 mins until golden brown. I served fresh goat cheese and palmetto cheese (pimento cheese) on the side. Enjoy!!

    Fried Green Tomatoes are like the final frontier for me and frying. I’m gonna have to try your recipe! I’m always scared to do them as I’ve just recently gotten over my fear of frying other things.
