Fried Green Tomatoes

Pin It
All Summer I craved theses, all summer I asked farmers market stores like spouts etc. if they would ever get them in stock so I can make fried Green tomatoes and every response was the same, no. Just when I was getting over it and moving on, I spotted a entire table full of Green tomatoes at a farmers market in this shopping center! Guess what I finally got to make? Green fried tomatoes and oh my gosh were they so good. My son has a phobia of tomatoes in general he just wont eat one. He ate 5 of these!! I didn't tell him they were tomatoes but I actually had to cut him off {to save room for dinner} Found this one here

Easy Fried Green Tomatoes
1 cup ground cornmeal
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon garlic powder
a pinch cayenne
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
a pinch of salt and pepper
4 large green (unripe) tomatoes, cut into 1/2-inch thick slices, with the ends removed
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
-homemade ranch dressing to dip

How-To Directions:
In a large bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour, garlic powder, and cayenne together. Pour the buttermilk into a separate bowl and season with salt and pepper. Dip the tomatoes in the buttermilk and then dredge them in the cornmeal mixture, coating both sides well.
Place a large cast iron skillet over medium heat and coat with the oil. When the oil is hot, pan-fry the tomatoes (in batches if necessary) until golden brown and crispy on both sides, about 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Carefully remove the tomatoes and drain on paper towels. Serve with ranch dressing.
