Fried Green Tomatoes

Fried green tomatoes, I’ve always wanted to learn them after watching the movie with the same title, and I don’t think I’m alone in this dream.

They taste insane and are worth the work to taste them. I like to be inspired by movies in the kitchen, and this recipe is one of them.

How to choose the best ingredients for Fried Green Tomatoes

Green tomatoes: we choose medium-sized green tomatoes. They can also be slightly pink but not red. The red ones are too soft, and we will crash during frying.

Bread Crumbs: you can prepare the tart on your own. Then you know what you are adding to the dish. The rolls bought in the blind are often dark brown, which means that there may be only leftovers or even bread. The best for breadcrumbs are baguettes. You have to dry them and then grind or grate them. You sure you have a few days’ pieces of bread left, and you don’t know what to do with it. Just leave them on the breadcrumbs.

Cornflour: cornflour is meant to be corn flour, not corn starch.

Tips and tricks

  •  It is good to put the bowls somewhere near the pan with the fat in my order at the same amount. We make cooking easier.
  • Well, when you have paper towels somewhere close. Hands dirty when you dip your tomatoes; this is inconvenient for me, and I like to wipe my hands off now and then.
  • Put our fried tomatoes on a plate lined with paper towels. This way, the towels collect excess fat.
