January 22 is National Southern Food and THAT is reason to celebrate. From porkchops and chicken fried steak to biscuits & gravy and collard greens, there's nothing quite as good as southern cooking!
With all the dishes to choose from, Chef Cody whipped up a mess of Fried Green Tomatoes that would make any food lover -- Southern or not -- cry a little tear of joy.
So grab your ingredients and your favorite fry pan and meet us in the kitchen!
Fried Green Tomato Recipe
On a different plate, mix cornmeal, breadcrumbs, salt, and pepper.
Dip tomatoes into flour, then into the milk/egg mixture, and finally into the breadcrumbs/cornmeal mixture to completely coat them.
In large skillet pour enough vegetable oil so there's at least 1/2 inch in the pan and heat over medium heat.
Place tomatoes in frying pan in small batches (4 or 5 at a time). They should not be touching. When top side of tomatoes becomes browned, flip and fry on the other side.
Remove from grease and drain on paper towels.
