Tons of people have been asking me for my fried green tomato recipe lately, so I thought I would share it. These perfectly completement any veggie plate you may be making this summer and taste like something directly out of my grandmother’s kitchen. We had these frequently since my grandmother always had a garden in her backyard, but you can find fried green tomatoes at your farmer’s markets and often at your local grocery store.

The recipe couldn’t be simpler!

Fried Green Tomatoes
Recipe courtesy of Ganache

Green tomatoes, sliced about 1/3 inch thick
Plain yellow cornmeal
Canola/peanut/vegetable oil
Kosher salt

Place your cast iron skillet over medium high heat and begin heating up your oil. Pour it in so it’s about one inch thick. Slice your tomatoes and place into the cornmeal, pressing the cornmeal onto the moist parts of the tomatoes so the coating adheres. Once the oil is hot, pan fry your tomatoes until golden brown on each side. Remove to a paper towel lined plate to absorb any excess grease. Salt immediately while hot and serve while still warm.
