How to Make Fried Green Tomatoes for Two


  1. Wash, dry,and slice tomato. Set aside. In a bowl mix the flour and corn meal together (I also put a little pepper in this mixture)set this aside. In another bowl mix egg and milk together.
  2. Heat oil for frying. Dip the tomatoes in the milk and egg mixture then dip in the meal and flour mixture. Make sure both sides are covered. Repeat by dipping the tomatoes in the egg and again in the meal and flour. Fry until golden brown and the tomato is not hard. Drain on paper towels. Salt and pepper. This is a good side, appetizer or snack.
