Fried Green Tomatoes

Recipe by: Bobbi Jo Lathan

Recipe type: Side

Cuisine: Southern

Serves: 2


5 mins


5 mins


10 mins


2 eggs (beaten)

½ cup buttermilk

½ cup unbleached flour

½ cup yellow cornmeal

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper

3 medium-size green tomatoes ( cut into about ⅓-inch slices)

Vegetable oil

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Mix the egg and buttermilk in a bowl.

  2. Combine ¼ cup all-purpose flour, cornmeal, 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl or pan.

  3. Dredge tomato slices in remaining ¼ cup flour; dip in egg mixture, and dredge in cornmeal mixture.

  4. Heat oil in a large cast-iron skillet. The oil should be about ½ inch up the side of the skillet. Also, the oil is hot enough when you sprinkle a little flour into the skillet and it sizzles.

  5. Drop tomatoes, in batches, into the hot oil, and cook for about 2 minutes on each side or until golden.

  6. Drain on paper towels or a rack.

  7. Sprinkle hot tomatoes with a little extra salt. Now, how easy is that? YUM!
