Um, have I mentioned that I’m from the South? If not, this post should make it painfully obvious.
A few basic facts about the South:
1. We say Sir and Ma’am. Always.
2. We drink iced sweet tea. All the time.
3. We fry stuff.
You will need:
1 large egg, lighty beated
½ cup buttermilk
½ cup all purpose flour, divided
¼ cup cornmeal
1 tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
3 medium green tomatoes, cut into ½ inch slices
More salt for seasoning.
Combine the egg and buttermilk.
Combine ½ cup flour and ¼ cup cornmeal in a flat bottomed dish. Add the salt and pepper.
Place the remaining ¼ cup flour in another flat bottomed dish.
Pour Vegetable oil ¼-½ inch deep in a cast iron skillet. Heat oil to 375 degrees.
Dredge tomato slices in the plain flour, then dip in the egg mixture and then dredge in the cornmeal mixture. The double dredging will give you a crispier crust.
Cook the slices about 2 minutes on each side, remove, drain on paper towels and salt while still hot.
