As you probably noticed I like to plan my cooking and I enjoy thinking about what I need and what I want to eat. I found a recipe on a fellow bloggers website for fried green tomatoes …. and they look awesome! I plan on adding this as a side with my BBQ this weekend and I can’t wait. Will and I have been growing our own tomatoes for a while now and the plants have consumed our yard. This will be our first time cooking some up so I will definitely check back with you and let you know how it went.
* recipe can be found at Something’s Burning website.
- 2 cups cornmeal
- 2 Tablespoons sugar
- 1 Tablespoon Salt
- 1 Teaspoon Pepper
- 2 pinches of Cayenne Pepper
- 1 1/2 cups Sour Cream
- 4 large green tomatoes, sliced 1/2 inch thick
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil, plus more as needed
In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients and pour the sour cream in a separate bowl. You could use buttermilk instead of sour cream.
Dredge the tomatoes in the sour cream and then into the cornmeal mixture coating each side.
Heat oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium to medium high heat and fry the tomato slices. Fry until they are golden brown and crisp.
About 3 or 4 minutes on each side. Dip them out with a fork and let most of the grease drip away and then place on a paper-towel lined plate. Serve hot like this.
