Fried Green Tomatoes

When the Summer's bounty of tomatoes starts to wain it is time for fried green tomatoes!! I like fried green tomatoes with just a hint of pink because they are not so tart and have a fuller flavor in my opinion. This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek today.


10 green tomatoes-sliced 1/4 inch thick
1 cup all purpose flour
2 cups white cornmeal
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 egg
1 cup milk
Oil for frying

Mix egg and milk together. Now sift flour, cornmeal, salt and pepper together. Dip tomatoes into milk mixture and then into cornmeal mixture. Pour a 1/4 inch of oil into a skillet and heat over medium heat until a bit of flour sizzles. Now place tomatoes in a single layer in your oil. Fry on each side for 4 minutes or until golden brown. Drain cooked tomatoes on paper towels. We like ours with ketchup (so wrong but taste so right) but plain they are great too!
