Is there anything better than a handful (or two) of crispy fried green tomatoes? We enjoyed this simple recipe for fried green tomatoes as children in the 1930s. They have a special taste all their own. You don’t want the tomatoes to get too ripe or the dish will get mushy. 

If you prefer your fried green tomatoes made with cornmeal, here’s our Southern Fried Green Tomatoes recipe.

4 to 6 firm green tomatoes, sliced 1/2-inch thick
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup vegetable oil or shortening
1/2 cup milk

Set tomatoes on paper towels.

In a skillet over medium-high heat, warm.

In a bowl, combine flour, salt, and pepper. Dip tomatoes into flour and shake off any excess before placing in hot skillet; brown thoroughly on both sides. After tomatoes are finished, add milk to contents of skillet and stir to make gravy. Pour gravy over tomatoes and serve as a main dish or side dish.
