Yum! I really enjoyed these. However I did add 1/4 cup of corn meal to the batter it helps to make the batter stick to the tomatoes better. Read More

This recipe was great when I modified it. It's not spicy at all but that was fine. I had to add a lot more flour to get a thick enough consistency for a batter that would stick. I fried these at 375 degrees in a deep fat fryer. They were delicious! Just add more flour. I also like to salt the tomatoes while they are cooling. Read More

I fried a 'test' tomato slice for taste and am glad I did because it was a bit bland for our taste so I added a tablespoon of Cajun seasoning and it was much more flavorful. Nice change from the flour/cornmeal breading. Read More

My boyfriend has begged me for fried green tomatoes all summer so I finally broke down today and decided on this recipe. They were great! I used ground cayenne as a substitute and rolled in panko bread crumbs after dredging in the batter. Fabulous I will make again and again!!!! I only gave the 4 stars because I added salt which I feel is a must with a recipe like this. Love the batter idea instead of flour egg bread crumb..... Read More

Thank you for your comments on this recipe. I didn't make the recipe real spicy just in case some do not like the kick to it. Therefore just add the crushed red pepper flakes to your taste more for spicier. I used Bud Light for the beer. The batter should not be real thick but you should have a light thin coating so you taste the tomatoe more than the flour. Thank you again for your reviews:) Read More
