A tried and true 5-star fried green tomato recipe, these fried green tomatoes are made with eggs and cornmeal or bread crumbs.

What You'll Need

  • 4 to 6 green tomatoes, sliced 1/4- to 1/2-inch thick
  • Dash salt (or to taste)
  • Dash pepper (or to taste)
  • 1/4 cup flour (for dusting)
  • 2 eggs (beaten)
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal (or bread crumbs)
  • bacon grease (or vegetable oil) for frying

How to Make It

Salt and pepper the tomato slices; dust lightly with flour. Dip slices in beaten egg, letting excess drip off, then coat well with cornmeal or crumbs.

Fry in hot grease or oil until browned, turning gently (about 3 minutes each side). Keep warm in a low 200°F to 250°F oven if frying in batches.

4 tomatoes yields 4 servings.
