"Crispy green tomatoes try dipping them in hot pepper sauce for extra flavor enhancement. Easy to make and good to eat what more could you ask for?" — Robin

salt and pepper to taste
We followed this recipe completely for our first attempt at Fried Green Tomatoes. We found them a bit bland and the coating to thin for our taste. The second time around we seasoned the breading with some garlic powder, red pepper flakes and parmesan cheese. After double dippin in the egg and breading mix... we loved the final result!

This is the way my Mother always did Green Tomatoes . Very good. We also in the fall what tomatoes didn't rippen we slice them place the slices on a tray and freeze, then put in ziplog bag.When you want to eat them Dip , Coat with flour, season to taste , and fry. Yum Yum
This is a very good recipe! Fast and easy! I served a platter of tomatoes with individual bowls of toppings such as sour cream, grated cheese, tiny chopped green onions, shredded cheese, ect. It was a great hit! My thanks to Robin! Arizona Joan
this was awesome! not gritty like cornmeal makes it! my son loved them, I added hot sauce to them, and my whole family loves them! thank you
I hope when people come looking for fried green tomato recipes they continue until they find this one! While crispy coating and crunchy texture is awesome on fried chicken, fried green tomatoes are best with a lighter batter and a slight softness, in my opinion. :o) This recipe provides that perfectly. In following my own mom and grandma, I use part butter and part canola oil when frying ... the butter adds a nice flavor. Just be careful not to burn! Once our tomatoes are coated and in the pan, we also sprinkled with a little white sugar. Flipping to spirnkle both sides. You could do this from the flour stage; mix it in, but I do what I have seen done before me. The end result is a soft fried texture with these bits of carmelized sugar that just play perfectly with the slight tartness of the green tomato. Love them!! Thanks for sharing your recipe and letting folks know cornmeal isn't the only way to an awesome fried green tomato!!
This was a great recipe! They taste just like my mother's. I live alone so I only used one tomato and cut the other ingredients in half for a single's dinner.
Excellent recipe! I added the hot sauce to the egg and it turned out great. Some of the best I have ever cooked!
