Fried Green Tomatoes
This terrific recipe for Fried Green Tomatoes was submitted by Lloyd Rushing of Texas City, Texas USA.
1 1/2 cups plain cornmeal (yellow or white - we use white)
1 tablespoon salt or to taste
1 teaspoon black pepper
6 to 8 medium-sized green tomatoes (must not be turning -slightly white is okay)
- Wash and slice the tomatoes approximately 1/4-inch thick. In a bowl, mix cornmeal, salt, and black pepper.
- In a 12-inch skillet, heat 3/8-inch of oil to the temperature that you would fry fish (360°F to 375°F or 185°C to 190°C). Put the tomato slices in the cornmeal, a few at a time to coat them. Have a platter lined with paper towels or napkins to absorb the excess grease. Fry them until both sides are brown (try to only turn them one time). If all are not eaten at one meal, they can be reheated in the oven. They tend to get soggy when microwaved.
Makes 6 to 8 servings.
