    Anyone have any yummy ways of making these? We watched Paula Dean deep fry them the other night and all the flour looked like it fell off.

    I just put S&P on the tomatoes then flour and pan fry over fairly low heat, not much grease. Been eating them this way all my life; love them. Probably the Yankee way.

    I dip mine in cornmeal and salt and pepper them.

    I dip in an egg wash, and bread with crushed saltines with italian herbs then fry or bake. Then make a diping sauce of sour cream and salsa with the same italian herbs to taste. DH gobbles them down like he hasn't eaten in days lol

    Mmmmm my mouth is watering [​IMG]
    Everytime my DD and I watch the Food Network ie: Iron Chef, Diners Drive-ins and Dives (or whatever that is called), anything where they're making food we just sit in a daze. We're pathetic [​IMG]

    Oh no green tomatos here but DD and I watched the movie "Fried Green Tomatos" the other night and then Paula Dean was making Holiday eats and that was a dish she made. So I got on here and looked at recipes and couldn't find FGT in there. I'm just gathering info for when I am able to try them. I wish I would've grown up in the south.......


    eta: dipping them in buttermilk sounds wonderful!!
