What’s For Dinner: Fried Green Tomatoes

Well... More like an after dinner snack. The garden is full of big green orbs and I couldn't resist. I dressed up the kind Grandma makes with a little extra seasoning. Still fast and easy: Fried Green TomatoesThe Goods:
  • 1 large green tomato
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • garlic powder to taste
  • paprika to taste
  • Corn meal to coat
  • 1 dollop of bacon grease or other cooking lubricant
The Process: Preheat your pan on medium heat and drop that bacon fat in there. Evenly coat the cooking surface. Drop a pile of corn meal onto a paper plate. Slice the tomato. I prefer a thin cut, around 1/8th of an inch. Sprinkle salt, pepper paprika and garlic to your liking. press te seasoned side of the tomato into the cornmeal to get a nice coating on there. repeat for the other side. Slide your coated tomato slices into the pan and brown each side. Plate, let them cool for a minute or two and enjoy. Any simpler and it would be a salad. Does your Grandma have a better FGT recipe?
