So I love summer for many reasons! I will not name them all as we would be here all day… But one of the reasons I love summer is for The Farmer’s Markets! It’s the only time I can get green tomatoes too, to make fried green tomatoes…And I LOVE fried green tomatoes!
and I want to watch this movie now:
So let’s start with the sauce I found to go with these fried green tomatoes…Guthrie’s Sauce
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp seasoned salt
Mix together all the ingredients in a bowl.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least two hours for the flavors to meld together. This sauce is not just great with fried green tomatoes, but also chicken fingers, seafood, and even as a salad dressing.
Now on to the tomatoes! Recipe
3 medium, firm green tomatoes
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp Cajun seasoning
1/2 cup milk or buttermilk
1/3 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup peanut oil or other vegetable oil
Cut unpeeled tomatoes into 1/2 inch slices.
Sprinkle slices with salt.
Let tomato slices stand for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, place in separate shallow bowls: the flour and Cajun seasoning,
and bread crumbs and cornmeal.
Heat the peanut oil in a skillet on medium heat. Beat the egg and the buttermilk together. Dip tomato slices in the flour-seasoning mix,
then buttermilk-egg mixture,
then the cornmeal-bread crumb mix.
In the skillet, fry half of the coated tomato slices at a time, for 3-5 minutes on each side
or until brown.
Set the cooked tomatoes on paper towels to drain.
When tomatoes are cool enough to eat, top them with Guthrie Sauce and eat away!
