      GREAT recipe, thanks for posting! (I'd like to add that if you don't already keep powdered buttermilk in stock, you darned well should! It opens the doors for tons of wonderful recipes- like this one- without leaving you stuck with half a carton of buttermilk in the fridge. And it's even good enough to use to make buttermilk pie.) We had this last night, served with fresh marinara sauce (recipe 136292) and a sprinkling of feta cheese. It was EXCELLENT. I had friends over for drinks to celebrate Repeal Day and we couldn't stop going back for seconds until every last tomato slice was gone. I'm thinking about making it an annual tradition... thanks again!

      I love the combo of the corn meal & flour. I added a great deal of seasoning, S&P, cajun, etc. I made the first two batches as directed. I couldn't get the crust to stay on with a higher temp or lower. I added an egg to the buttermilk and the next batch stuck much better. Thanks!

      This was my first taste of fried green tomatoes. It was a great first experience. I had them with sausages, fried eggs and rice (a great Asian style meal). I topped the tomatoes with a little hot sauce and soy sauce. Yummy! Thanks for sharing, chia.
