Another Fried Green Tomato Recipe

My grandma emma got me hooked on fried green tomatoes when I was really little. Now I make them for our family. You can add some cajun seasoning to the paprika and add more or less paprika as you wish. Also I put cornmeal because it didn't recognize drakes fry mix. I use drakes and luv it, gives it a nice crispy tomato.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut your tomatoes that are chilled. Heat the canola oil.
  2. Add your drakes crispy fry mix and paprika together.
  3. Dip your tomatoes in milk and dip in your drakes.
  4. Fry the tomatoes in the canola oil for a few minutes until crispy. I turn them over a couple times.
  5. I pat the oil with a paper towel and put a dash of salt on them.

I bought some green tomatoes from our local farmer's co-op because my family had never had fried green tomatoes. Put the tomatoes in the refrigerator overnight to chill and made them for a Saturday afternoon snack. Tripled the recipe and did find the Drakes's fry mix so used that with a bit of fresh ground pepper added. We all enjoyed the tomatoes and loved the crispy coating. Also drained them on a paper towel before serving. Thank you so much sweetie for sharing your Grandma's recipe! Made and reviewed for Adopt A Tag 2009.

What a great way to use up those green tomatoes! I couldn't find Drakes Fry Mix so I used the cornmeal and they turned out perfectly. Then next time I make them, I will add a bit of cajun seasoning for hubby. Great recipe, faith. This is a keeper!
