TMTT~ Fried Green Tomatoes~

Please check out Lisa over at Blessed With Grace for more TMTT....its fabulous!
I posted on my other blog ~Babbling Brooks~ about how I had all of these greent tomatoes and needed to find something to do with them! Well Coco at Piece O'Coconut Cake provided me with this recipe! Its good too! Thanks Coco!

Fried Green Tomatoes

3 medium-large green tomatoes
1/2 cup all-purpose flourgenerous amount of fresh black pepper
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup fine yellow cornmeal ( I could not find the fine cornmeal and the regular worked OK)
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon brown sugar
oil for frying
extra salt for sprinkling
Directions

Cut the tomatoes into ~1/4 inch slices
Combine 1/4 cup of the flour and a generous amount of fresh black pepper together in a bowl.
Whisk the egg and milk together in another bowl.
Mix the cornmeal, parmesan, brown sugar, salt, and remaining 1/4 cup flour together in the third bowl
Lightly dredge the tomato slices in the flour, then dip into the egg mixture, letting the excess drip off.
Bury the wet tomato slices in the cornmeal mixture, pat the coating onto them, then gently shake off the crumbs
Pour about 1/4-inch of oil into a heavy skillet and warm over medium-high heat
fry the slices in batches until golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side
Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with salt while still piping hot.

Yum. I love FGT. These look awesome. I made them a few months ago and loved them so much so I vowed never to try another recipe. BUT, I am so curious not to now. Yours use cornmeal and mine just breadcrumbs. What do you like about it? Is it crispier??

I -love- fried green tomatoes! I can't seem to get my hands on any where I am now. Regular flour works okay in place of cornmeal too, for a slightly different version =)

They look delicious! I'm glad that it worked out. I think I'm going to try them but I'm going to mix cayenne pepper in with the cornmeal because we like things
H-O-T around here...
