Whether they're a childhood favorite or a new discovery, once you've tried Fried Green Tomatoes, it's hard to forget 'em! Our recipe for this down-home Southern classic is so easy and delicious, you'll want to make 'em all year long!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 5 green tomatoes, cored and cut into 1/4-inch slices (see Tip)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup self-rising white cornmeal mix
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
What To Do:
  1. In a large bowl, combine egg, water, salt, and pepper; mix well. Add tomato slices in batches, turning to coat well.
     
  2. In a shallow dish, combine flour and cornmeal mix; mix well. Dip each tomato slice in flour mixture, coating completely.
     
  3. In a large skillet, heat oil over high heat until hot but not smoking. Fry tomato slices in batches 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until golden.
     
  4. Drain on a paper towel-lined platter, then serve.
Notes
  • Green tomatoes are available in the early summer in most supermarkets, and with their popularity growing all around the country, you can often find them during the rest of the year in specialty and health food markets.
