Fried Green Tomatoes

Ingredients

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup(s) all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1/2 cup(s) cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) pepper
  • 3 medium size green tomatoes
  • vegetable oil for frying
  • Salt, to taste

Instructions

  1. Cut the tomatoes into 1/3" slices and let them rest for 20-30 minutes on a paper towel. This absorbs the excess moisture, making for crispier fritters.
  2. Prepare your dredging stations. For station one, put 1/4 cup of flour on a plate or shallow bowl. For station two, whisk together the egg and buttermilk. For station three, mix the remaining 1/4 cup flour with the cornmeal, salt, and pepper. Dredge the tomato slices one at a time through the three dredging stations.
  3. Pour oil to a depth of 1/4" to 1/2" in a large skillet.
  4. Add a correct sized Frywall to prevent messy splatter. Make sure it is not submerged in the oil and is at least 1/4" above the oil line.
  5. Heat the oil to ~375°. You can put the Frywall in the pan while the oil heats.
  6. Drop tomatoes, in batches, into hot oil, and cook 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden.
  7. Drain on paper towels or a rack
  8. Serve with the buttermilk ranch dressing dipping sauce.

Buttermilk Ranch Dressing Dipping Sauce

  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) pepper
  • 1-2 dash tabasco sauce
