Recipe – Southern Style Fried Green Tomatoes

Straight from my Alabama kitchen here is a true southern recipe. Tangy and delicious.

Traditional Southern Cooking. Vegetarian. 

You will need:

  • Iron skillet. Ok so you could technically make these in another kind of skillet but I promise they will not taste the same. 
  • 2 eggs (farm fresh is best of course!)
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup self rising flour
  • 1/2 cup white cornmeal
  • Salt and pepper 
  • Vegetable oil or coconut oil
  1. Slice tomatoes.
  2. Place 1/4 cup flour in a flat bottom bowl or plate. 
  3. Beat buttermilk and eggs together in a bowl suitable for dipping tomato slices. 
  4. Mix remaining flour with corn meal in a separate flat bottom bowl or plate. Add salt and pepper to taste. 
  5. Heat oil in iron skillet until water drops sizzle. 
  6. Dredge each tomato slice in the flour first, then dip into the egg mixture, then finally coat in the cornmeal mix
  7. Fry in heated oil until golden brown on each side. 


Please note, southern cooks are not taught to cook using measurements. I attempted to measure my ingredients to create this recipe but I cook traditional southern dishes without measuring so feel free to adjust it to your tastes. 

Have a Daisy May Day!
