Fried green tomatoes

I was out to lunch today and had fried green tomatoes. They looked just like these, it came with jalapeño ranch dressing. I took half of the crust off for lower carb.

I also had a salad.

Flour and cornmeal mixed together, the tomatoes dipped first in a thin milk egg batter,

I heard it is hard to get cornmeal over there. Is that true? And where are you, I’m in Texas.

Thanks for this recipe G1nny, it looks really good.

Coarse and fine yellow cornmeal is widely available in ethnic shops rather than the big supermarkets here in the U.K. 😊

I would choose fine cornmeal over coarse.

Hi G1nny

Those look very tasty. I've never had fried green tomatoes before.

If I’m lucky and get any tomatoes on my plants I have to pick them green before Mr. Squirrel gets them. A lady down the street from me sells her green tomatoes.
