Fried Green Tomatoes
Perfect for a summer cookout or family gathering, pair this with grilled chicken, burgers, BBQ, or even a pork chop.
Have you thought about growing your own? All they are is unripe tomatoes.Read More
Here in AZ I cannot find green tomatoes. Any suggestions?Read More

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.Read More

Try canola oil, has higher smoke temp then plain veg and tastes better. me thinks.

I never use an egg, just buttermilk. What's the egg for?Read More
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 Smiles46Read More
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.Read More
Delicious!! I do believe these are the best I've ever made--so glad I went looking for a different recipe!Read More
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.Read More
Perfect and simple. Added a dash of cayenne to my flour dredge, but everything else the same. Delicious.Read More
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.Read More
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!Read More
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!!Read More
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!Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
I've been using this recipe for several years. Can't beat its crispy, tasty yumminess!Read More
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!!!Read More
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.Read More
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!Read More
