I just love fried green tomatoes and was wondering how you guys make them? I would not mind trying different ways to cook em.
i season them with seasoned salt and pepper and dredge in flour and cornmeal mixed half and half. Then just fry them in cast iron skillet
My daugter in law made me the best ones a couple of weeks ago. She just coated them in cornmeal and salt and fried them. They were so very good.

Ya know what? I aint never actually tried one (I dont like raw tomatoes.) Do they taste real tomato-like or...? I wanna know before I try one cuz last time I tried a raw tomato I heaved for a full 5 minutes, but if it aint real tomato-like, I'll try one someday.
I don't think they are very tomato-y tasting.

I dip mine in milk and then in a mix of flour and italian bread crumbs and fry in butter!
Add butter bread and call it a meal. YUMMY!
I love them with breakfast!! First I fry up some bacon in a big skillet. Then I cook up the hashbrowns in the same skillet in some of the bacon grease. After they are done, I do the fried GTs in the same skillet also in grease. I dredge them in whatever is handy. Last but not least, I fry up some eggs in the bacon-y pan and presto!! The best start to your day ever

I think they have a little tartness to them and are YUMMY! I've tried coating them in flour and coating them in cornmeal, but I've never tried a half/half mixture. I'm going to have to give that a try!

I don't know about y'all but I'm picking the last of my tomatoes while they're still green because the dern pests are eating the red ones faster than I can pick them. That's okay, we'll just have lots of fried green'uns for the next few weeks.

menageriemama, that sounds delicious! I can feel my arteries clogging just by reading it though.
