A Southern Recipe

The movie made me google for recipes.

Fried Green Tomatoes

Vegetable oil, for frying

¼ cup (at least) bacon grease, optional

4 large green tomatoes, in ¼-inch slices

2/3 cup milk

1/3 cup all-purpose flour

1/3 cup cornmeal

½ tsp. salt

½ tsp. black pepper

½ tsp. cayenne (optional)

Dash garlic powder (optional)

Heat oil (and bacon grease) in skillet over medium high heat.

Slice four large green tomatoes into quarter-inch thick slices and place in bowl of milk.

In a shallow dish, combine flour, cornmeal, salt and rest of seasonings.

Remove tomato slices from milk and dredge in cornmeal mixture to lightly coat. Dip slices back into milk, then dredge again in cornmeal mixture.

Shake slices gently and add to hot oil in frying pan. Fry until each side is crisp and golden brown, about two to three minutes per side. Drain on paper towels. Serve hot with ketchup, hot sauce or gravy or eat alone.

This is from Joe's Place. And here's two other recipes that use slightly different ingredients.'

Of course, it's not very likely that I'd get off my lazy ass to make them, but consider this to be for future reference.
