Truth be told, my real “fried green tomato recipe” is throwing a little of this and a little of that into bowl. Then, I put a cup of that, a dash of this, and an egg into a different bowl…
But since Husband was posting about burger night, and we’d had this recipe requested on several occasions, I thought I should probably try harder for you fine people and (*gasp*) use a measuring cup. So here it is, my fried green tomato recipe (or at least a close approximation of the dumping and smidging). Enjoy!
Before you do anything, start heating your oil in the iron skillet. Put the burner on medium heat–this will take a little longer but is safer.
3⁄4 C all-purpose flour
1⁄2 C finely ground cornmeal
1 Tblsp coarsely ground cornmeal
3⁄4 C milk
hot sauce (like Louisiana or Frank’s) – knock yourself out
In one bowl, mix your dry ingredients. In another your wet.
The key in breading is ORDER. Repeat after me: Flour – Milk – Flour – Milk – Flour
Now just fry until golden brown on both side.
Remove from the oil on to paper towels to soak up any excess. Then, sprinkle with a little salt.
