Another Fried Green Tomato Recipe

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by faith58

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.

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.
