Easy Southern Fried Green Tomatoes
June 03, 2014

Well, this is the closest as I've been able to find to my grandmother's recipe. I,,,,we only have fried green tomatoes when we have Catfish and hushpuppies. I salt the slices for a while and dab off the water. Then I put them in flour and let them set for a while. Before making the hushpuppies, I dredge the catfish in the cornmeal/salt and pepper, and let them set a while. I then dredge the tomatoes in the flour and let them set. I set the table and heat up the deep fryer, then I dip the tomatoes into the egg/milk (instead of water) and then into the cornmeal. I let them set. Each time you let the flour or cornmeal set, it "glues" itself to the food. I then mix up the flour egg/milk and cornmeal with some baking powder and minced onion, onion powder and make the hushpuppy dough. Well, I got off the subject, but I hope this helps someone.
