Fried Green Tomatoes

Oh my gosh! I really love summertime and fresh veggies from the garden. I love a fresh tomato sandwich but sometimes those green tomatoes tempt me and I have to rob a few off the vine to have some fried green tomatoes. If you haven’t had a fried green tomato you should really try out this recipe tonight!

Fried Green Tomatoes

Fried Green Tomatoes


  • 3-4 green tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 c. flour (or 1/2 c. flour and 1/2 c. cornmeal)
  • seasoned salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste
  • 1 c. oil
  • 1-2 T. butter or margarine, optional
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten


Line a plate with paper towels.

Heat the oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Mix together the flour and seasonings.

Dip the green tomatoes into the flour, then the egg, and then the flour again.

Drop the floured tomatoes into the hot oil and fry until golden brown and crispy on both sides.

Drain on paper towels.

Let cool and enjoy.

I enjoy eating these with this Cajun Dipping Sauce.
