Fried Green Tomatoes

Contributed By: Patricia


3  medium, firm green tomatoes
1/2  teaspoon salt
1/4  teaspoon black pepper
1/2  cup all-purpose flour
1/4  cup milk
2   eggs, slightly beaten
2/3  cup fine dry bread crumbs or cornmeal
1/4  cup cooking oil


1. Cut unpeeled tomatoes into 1/2-inch slices; sprinkle slices with the
salt and pepper. Let tomato slices stand for 15 minutes. Meanwhile,
place flour, milk, eggs, and bread crumbs in separate shallow dishes.

2. Dip tomato slices in milk, then flour, then eggs, then bread crumbs.
In a skillet fry the coated tomato slices, half at a time, in hot oil
over medium heat for 4 to 6 minutes on each side or until brown. (If
tomatoes begin to brown too quickly, reduce heat to medium-low. If
necessary, add additional oil.) If desired, season to taste with
additional salt and black pepper. Makes 6 servings
