Fried Green Tomatoes

Oh, the joy of fresh veggies. And my favorite FRIED GREEN TOMATOES. One of my all-time favorite movies. Many leave-me-alone messages for women in abusive relationships...whether they know they are abusive or not! Often times we are so snuffed down verbally by a dominator ( who abuses) that through the years we forget to call it what it is...ABUSE.

While this is a very important subject, it's not my subject today. Back to fried green tomatoes. They are very much in season right now in the deep south. Get 'em while you can!

Here's all you need....

Yep...that's all you need green tomatoes and a cast iron skillet...that's been seasoned of course!

And, here's the deep south traditional recipe

Green tomatoes
Corn meal

Slice 1/4" to 1/2" thick - salt and pepper to taste - dip in corn meal - fry about 3 minutes or until golden, flip and fry other side. Delicious - even for breakfast with bacon and eggs......yummmmm. SERVE NOW!!!

    This is one food we didn't care for ... altho they looked good before we ate them.

  2. Oh yum! We have eaten the best Fried Green Tomatoes at Selmon's restaurant. We have made them at home before, but Selmon's makes them with a light batter, and YUM!! Southern cuisine :-)

  3. Okay, so one does and one doesn't!
    So many summer recipes to enjoy... we won't quibble over what our tastebuds dictate. Hope you enjoyed the movie though.


Thanks for stopping by...
