Amazing! Used panko, regular milk and green peanut oil since that is what we had on hand. So crispy and bright! Served with roasted okra and sweet potato french fries. Easy, fresh, locally sourced dinner.
Worst ever. The batter was sloppy and the ingredient dimensions woefully sad. Absolute rubbish. Use a decent beer batter and forgo the useless buttermilk.
Have you thought about growing your own? All they are is unripe tomatoes.
Here in AZ I cannot find green tomatoes. Any suggestions?
Haven't tried yet -- can't figure out how to save recipe anymore without posting a review
To eliminate smoke when frying eggplant or tomatoes, use grapeseed oil. It has a much higher heating point and I assure you, you will not have smoke. It is clear and has no odor. It is more
expensive than the traditional cooking oils, but has made a believer of me.
I THINK GREEN FRIED TOMATOES ROCK BREINIGSVILLE,PA LEHIGH VALLEY IN PENN STATE
Try canola oil, has higher smoke temp then plain veg and tastes better. me thinks.
A binding agent
I never use an egg, just buttermilk. What's the egg for?
Be sure your tomatoes are very firm, almost hard, all green. Once the green starts to lighten or turn colors you will find the tomatoes have too much moisture for the perfect fried green tomato. Also, you can sprinkle them with salt, let sit 15 - 20 minutes and then blot dry to draw out moisture.
I, too, like to add cayenne and paprika and maybe a little black pepper.
This is one of the Best recipes I have tried on the green fryed Tomatoes so glad I found It Thanks Smiles46
Yummy, even with canola oil. Served with our NOLA friend's mother's remoulade recipe for dinner. The only caution would be to make sure you start with enough hot oil to fry all the tomatoes. Adding oil to the pan made the second batch a little greasy.
Delicious!! I do believe these are the best I've ever made--so glad I went looking for a different recipe!
This was so good. Reminded me of the first time I ate fried greens tomatoes at a restaurant on the Ga/Tn line. Couldn't wait til I found some equally as good. These came to within .1 of as good as those experienced. Will certainly serve them again and again.
Perfect and simple. Added a dash of cayenne to my flour dredge, but everything else the same. Delicious.
The only thing I did differently was fry them in reserved bacon grease. I figured if I was going to "play Southerner" I should at least try to go whole hog and use bacon grease. Fried some okra at the same time with the same recipe, also exceptionally OM NOM NOM. Will definitely save this one for future reference.
These were great! I did a couple of things different. I like a little spice so I added some cayenne pepper (or Slap ya Mamma - hot seasoning) and a little paprika to tie in with the remoulade sauce. I also used peanut oil instead of vegtable oil and they turned out amazing! This one is a keeper!
I have never eaten fried green tomatoes before. I've always wanted to tried it, so tonight was the perfect time to try it. I got the recipe from this online. It's my first time cooking 'em, and they were so heavenly DELICIOUS!!
This recipe is just like my mother used to make. Perfect southern version! A little tip if you don't have any buttermilk. Just add a little white vinegar to regular milk, stir and you've got buttermilk! Instantly curdles!
These are the greatest we have had. Only did two things differently: sliced the tomatoes and lightly salted them and let stand for 20 minutes and used peanut oil not vegetable oil to fry them. Outstanding!! Nice with a crispy crunch.
I was born and raised in the south, we have ate fried green tomatoes all my life and still love them today, this recipe is perfect wouldn't change a thing.
I've been using this recipe for several years. Can't beat its crispy, tasty yumminess!
This is my recipe that I use all the time (well before it was published here). I just love it and I love fried green tomatoes. I am not sure why someone would give a bad rating because they do not like the tomatoes. That is just wrong to do. Rate the dish and recipe not your liking. Thank you Myrecipes for giving us such awesome recipes!!!
We had to pick the last of our tomatoes yesterday, many of which were green, due to impending frost. Soooo, that makes it Fried Green Tomato time. I hadn't tried this recipe before, but it was the best yet. We especially liked the cornmeal in the coating, plus the fact that the coating stuck to the tomatoes well. Not at all greasy. I will def try this application with onion rings, etc, in the future.
We did not love the fried green tomatoes (will have to try again someday w/ a different batch of tomatoes), but after the tomatoes we battered and fried some onion rings w/ this recipe. YUMMY!!! The onion rings deserve 5 stars! We will definitely make those again. BTW, we too experienced alot of smoke...so much in fact that our smoke alarm when off!
