I love fried green tomatoes. They are really simple to make.
When it comes to this dish, either people really love them or they really hate them.
My mom used to say they were an acquired taste. I am not sure I agree with that.
I will say that it really isn’t a taste most young children like.
The tomato is a bit tart, but the coating and frying just makes it yummy.
You will need a large skillet.
You will still need to cook in batches unless you have a big electric skillet.
2-3 green tomatoes, sliced into slices 1/4″ or less
1/2 cup flour, cornmeal, or a mixture of flour and ground flax seed
4 Tbs. butter for frying. Or you can substitute cooking oil.
Melt the butter in a skillet over medium high heat.
While the pan is heating up, dip eat slice of tomato into the flour. Turn to make sure both sides are coated well.
One by one, add the tomatoes slices and season well with the salt and pepper.
Cook for a few minutes, flip the slices over, and season again with salt and pepper.
Cook another few minutes.
You may need to turn the heat down so the coating won’t burn.
To see if they are done, you can poke one slice with a fork.
They will be tender when done.
Remove to a paper towel covered plate.
This will make enough for 4 people depending on the size of tomato and how thickly they were sliced.
The thinner the slice, the faster the cooking time

Yumm! My granny used to make those. They are sooo good. Makes me wish I was growing larger tomatoes this year. I don't know if this would work well for cherry or grape tomatoes. My grandfather used to grow Beefsteaks and we'd eat fried green tomatoes and tomato sandwiches all summer long. 🙂
Jenn, I don't think cherry tomatoes would work. Never know til you try though.:)

Cathy, it is a really unique flavor. Kind of tart and a little salty from the fried coating.
Jo-Anne, never say never!:D I couldn't imagine not eating tomatoes.
