Fried Green Tomatoes!


So much melt in your mouth deliciousness in a single tomato. I didn’t think about doing a photomontage along the lines of CC’s  chocolate fudge birthday cake or Melanie’s should-be-famous carnitas until they were bubbling in my iron skillet. So, you have the almost-ready picture to the dinner time presentation picture.*Melanie, I just visited your blog….may I suggest eating them green! zee chef

    Sheri, that is a fabulous idea, but I don’t think it’ll work. I’ll show you why tomorrow. 🙄

    Your fried green tomatoes look delicious! What do you fry them in? Bacon grease? That’s what I would use, but then, I like bacon grease on everything. lol

  2. Sheri says:

    I’ll fry them in just about anything!

    They look delicious! I considered making some yesterday. A storm blew a green tomato off the vine. I picked it up and it is still sitting on my kitchen counter.

    GROSS…. green tomatoes AND bacon grease… bleech!

  5. oooOOOOooooo bacon grease. I never thought about that. I always used veg oil.

    Do you dip them in flour or corn meal?

  6. Sheri says:

    I use some bacon grease, if I have it on hand, otherwise it is canola or vegetable oil.
    For the breading, I prefer to use flour, then dip in egg, then flour again. If I use cornmeal, then I use half cornmeal/half flour.
    Salt & pepper to taste; sometimes adding a wee bit of garlic salt or garlic powder.
    Fry your slices until they are quite soft.

    I do the same thing with eggplant…if I don’t grill it or use it in a pasta dish. Serve with a marinara sauce, if you wish.

    Mmmm, I love fried eggplant. I’m the only one, though, so we rarely have it.

    Not sure about “fried green tomatoes” must be a southern thing and I’m a foreign born Yankee thru and thru. 😀

    I have found, from my mom last Aug., that eggplant isn’t as bad as I thought. She made eggplant parmesan as a side for dinner one night for hubby, me and herself – my dad and my kids wouldn’t touch it. I found it to be quite good. I really need to take it to the next church potluck and see how it goes over.
