This recipe has been used in our family for many years. My problem now is that I have trouble finding green tomatoes! The recipe is very simple, but I salt and pepper the tomatoes a little and add a little white flour to the cornmeal. My mother would sprinkle a little sugar - white or brown - on the tomato after she turned them. When the sugar melts and is crusty the tomato is done.
Directions See How It's Made
- Slice tomatoes about 1/4 inch thick, season with salt and pepper and then coat both sides with cornmeal.
- In a large skillet, heat enough bacon drippings to coat the bottom of the pan, and fry tomatoes until lightly browned on both sides.
- This recipe was from the back of Fannie Flagg's novel, "Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe".
