Very good starting point for Fried Green Tomatoes. I like my breading to have a bit more seasoning. But I really did enjoy this recipe, I made it just as the recipe directed. The end result was good.
Just like Mama taught me to make them. So good! Thanks for posting.
This is the first time this Northern girl even tried Fried Green Tomatoes. I found this recipe and I must say "Yum!" I used flour instead of cornmeal as I was out and dipped the tomato slices in milk before I dipped them in my flour mixture. I am impressed with the simplicity of this recipe. I will definitely make again.
Giving this 5 stars because, it is easy to make, minimal ingredients and still tasty. A perfect start recipe for those who have never made fried green tomatoes before. Leaves tons of room for making this recipe your own! As a southern lady I have made many batches of fried green tomatoes, and this is certainly one of the best basic/start ones I have come across. Grandma would be proud.
