1 1/2 cups

eggs, lightly beaten
1 (12 fluid ounce) can
oil for frying
green tomatoes, sliced 1/2 inch thick
Yum! I really enjoyed these. However, I did add 1/4 cup of corn meal to the batter, it helps to make the batter stick to the tomatoes better.
This recipe was great when I modified it. It's not spicy at all, but that was fine. I had to add a lot more flour to get a thick enough consistency for a batter that would stick. I fried these at 375 degrees in a deep fat fryer. They were delicious! Just add more flour. I also like to salt the tomatoes while they are cooling.
I fried a 'test' tomato slice for taste and am glad I did because it was a bit bland for our taste so I added a tablespoon of Cajun seasoning and it was much more flavorful. Nice change from the flour/cornmeal breading.
I LOVE this recipe and wish I could make it all of the time. This recipe is the reason I grow tomatoes in the summer. I'm happy ya'll like my pics :)
My boyfriend has begged me for fried green tomatoes all summer, so I finally broke down today and decided on this recipe. They were great! I used ground cayenne as a substitute and rolled in panko bread crumbs after dredging in the batter. Fabulous, I will make again and again!!!! I only gave the 4 stars because I added salt which I feel is a must with a recipe like this. Love the batter idea instead of flour, egg, bread crumb.....
Thank you for your comments on this recipe. I didn't make the recipe real spicy just in case some do not like the kick to it. Therefore, just add the crushed red pepper flakes to your taste more for spicier. I used Bud Light for the beer. The batter should not be real thick but you should have a light thin coating so you taste the tomatoe more than the flour. Thank you again for your reviews :)
This is the BEST recipe I have ever made for the fried green tomatoes! I have tried several recipes and this one is amazing!! I made it exactly as it called and took them down to my husband and his fishing buddies and they were a huge hit. Thank you sooooo much for sharing!
Thanks, Sinsgirl, I tried these because of your photo! Great job, you take really nice pics! Also, thanks for the post, we enjoyed!
