Fried Green Tomatoes
by Chef Deedle

With the wonderful crop of tomatoes we all have this year, I just have to bring out the old all time favorite that we Southerners make such a fuss about - Fried Green Tomatoes.

Fried Green Tomatoes

3 large green tomatoes, sliced
½ cup unsifted self-rising flour
¾ cup self rising cornmeal
salt and pepper to taste
vegetable oil
3 Tbsp. bacon grease

1. Cut tomatoes into 3/8 inch thick slices. In medium bowl, mix flour and cornmeal with salt and pepper. Coat tomatoes with mixture and let sit for 15 minutes on wax paper.

2. In heavy skillet, heat ½ inch oil and the bacon grease over medium to high heat. Lightly coat tomatoes with flour and cornmeal mixture. Brown on both sides, 3 minutes in all. Serve hot. Absolutely delicious! I can make a meal of just the fried tomatoes.

We want your tomato recipes too. Send your favorite tomato recipes to the paper by mail or e-mail or just drop them off at the Leader office. Let’s have some fun!
