Recipe by Crystal Bodyroc McGlown
"I have been making fried green tomatoes for over 35 years, taught by my grandmother who is from down south. Over the years I have tried and made fried green tomato recipes and this is the one that is perfect. Cajun ranch sauce goes perfect with this crispy on the outside but smooth and creamy on the inside tomato."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

OMG This was a fantastic recipe, the batter stayed on perfectly and the Cajan Ranch Sauce was excellent also! I decided to expermint and used 1 tomatoe that was riper. There is a reason they call it fried green tomatoes as the red one was mushy, I sure won't try that again. I have an over abundant supply of tomatoes and decided to try something different. I made the recipe exactly as written. You won't go wrong with this recipe. Loved, loved, loved it!
Just made is for my family and it was a huge hit!! Excellent recipe, will definetly make again!
For those needing "cajun seasoning" for the dipping sauce but don't have it premixed... put together 1 tablespoon dried oregano,1 tablespoon paprika, 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper and 1 tablespoon ground black pepper and use 1-2 tablespoons of this in 1/2 cup of Ranch Dressing depending on how spicey you like your dipping sauce. Use caution if you don't like spicey-ness.
