Ingredients

Directions

Select the greenest tomatoes available. Wash, remove stem, and slice into 1/4-inch slices; place in bowl or platter. Mix flour, cornmeal, salt, and pepper just enough milk to make a thick batter (the consistency of pancake batter). Heat oil in skillet over high heat: reduce heat to medium-high. Dip tomato slices into batter, wiping against bowl to remove excess batter, and place in hot oil. When browned on both sides, remove from oil and place in colander to drain (this will keep tomatoes from becoming soggy). To serve, stand up tomatoes like wheels in a serving bowl.

Cook's Note

If you don't want to make the batter from scratch, use our Irondale Cafe Original Whistlestop(tm) Recipes Brand Fried Green Tomato Batter Mix. Another way to batter green tomatoes is to dip them into beaten egg or buttermilk, drain off excess liquid, and dip them into a mixture of flour and cornmeal. Fry in bacon drippings or hot oil; drain in colander before serving. The tomatoes can also be deep-fried in hot oil until golden brown and then drained in colander.
