Wednesday is Farmer’s Market day for me. This Wednesday I was lucky enough to find some nice green tomatoes mixed in with all of the beautiful ripe ones. I bought some up and made us some Fried Green Tomatoes for a snack yesterday afternoon. I kept it nice and simple because I knew the tomatoes would be delicious…
And they were…
Fried Green Tomatoes (Simply Recipes)
3 medium, firm green tomatoes
1/2 cup whole wheat flour (seasoned with salt and pepper)
1/4 cup milk
2 beaten eggs
2/3 cup fine cornmeal
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 Cut unpeeled tomatoes into 1/2 inch slices. Sprinkle slices with salt and pepper. Let tomato slices stand for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, place flour, milk, eggs, and bread crumbs in separate shallow dishes.
2 Heat 2 Tbsp of olive oil in a skillet on medium heat. Dip tomato slices in milk, then flour, then eggs, then bread crumbs. In the skillet, fry half of the coated tomato slices at a time, for 4-6 minutes on each side or until brown. As you cook the rest of the tomatoes, add olive oil as needed. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
