Epically Southern! Fried Green Tomatoes


The one thing I don't have to worry about moving down South are veggies.  My mommy-in-law drove up here last week with a cooler full of frozen veggies and all sorts of other fresh veggies.  We won't have one problem with organic veggies.  

I have a basket of green tomatoes and didn't want them to go bad so we had some fried green tomatoes with dinner tonight.  Tomorrow I'm going to make green tomato salsa.  GO ME!

The only thing I was missing was, of course, buttermilk.  I don't keep milk in the house because we don't drink it so I always keep organic dry milk on hand.  Just add water and MILK!


To make the fried green tomatoes I needed buttermilk so I had to add a tablespoon of vinegar to a cup of milk and let it sit for 10 minutes to thicken.  Excellent buttermilk substitute!  Whip a couple of eggs up in that, soak tomato slices and then dredge in flour and cornmeal mixture that has been seasoned.  Fry on one side until browned and turn over.  

Drain and enjoy!

Do you eat fried green tomatoes?  Do you ever make them?
