    Fried Green Tomatoes

    Source of Recipe

    From "Mary Mac's Tea Room 75th Anniversary Cookbook" by John Ferrell

    Recipe Introduction

    "These are not hard to make. Just use fresh-cut and locally grown green tomatoes, lightly bread them, and fry to a golden brown. How many other recipes are worthy of a movie?"

    List of Ingredients

    ◦ 2 cups vegetable oil
    ◦ 1 large egg
    ◦ 2 tablespoons whole milk
    ◦ 1 teaspoon salt
    ◦ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    ◦ 1 cup all-purpose flour
    ◦ cup cracker crumbs or coarsely ground panko bread crumbs
    ◦ 3 firm medium green tomatoes, cut into -inch slices


    Heat the vegetable oil in a deep-fryer or in a heavy, deep skillet to 350 F. Line a plate with paper towels.

    In a small bowl, beat the egg; add the milk, teaspoon of the salt, and the black pepper. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, cracker crumbs, and the remaining teaspoon salt.

    Dip the tomato slices into the egg mixture, turning to coat. Dredge in the flour mixture until well coated. Place in the hot oil and fry until golden brown, turning once. Drain. Serve immediately.

    Serves 6
