Fried Green Tomatoes – #southerncomfort
A classic that you can eat on their own or add to a sandwich or burger!
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup self-rising cornmeal mix
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 medium-size, firm green tomatoes, cut into 1/3-inch-thick slices (about 1 1/4 lb.)
Whisk together egg and buttermilk.
Combine cornmeal mix, salt, pepper, and 1/4 cup flour in a shallow dish.
Dredge tomato slices in remaining 1/4 cup flour; dip in egg mixture, and dredge in cornmeal mixture.
Pour oil to a depth of 1/2 inch in a large cast-iron skillet; heat to 375° over medium-high heat.
Drop tomatoes, in batches, into hot oil, and cook 2 minutes on each side or until golden.
Drain on paper towels.
Sprinkle hot tomatoes with salt to taste.
