Southern Fried Green Tomatoes: Easy and Crazy Delicious
Fried green tomatoes are a delicacy in our home – and something that my husband begins craving, like clockwork, each May. Last year, he started craving them way too early and I had to tell him to slow his roll… I can’t make fried green tomatoes happen until the tomato plants make green tomatoes happen!
Fried green tomatoes are delicious, on their own, alongside just about any meal you can think of (breakfast meals that include fried eggs pair magically with them). We’ve discovered that they’re also outstanding on burgers and BLTs.
One of the main things you want to remember is not to crowd the pan. They like their space! To keep your fried green tomatoes from getting mushy or soggy while you cook them in batches, place them into a moderately warm oven (200 degrees or so) while frying the rest. Don’t cover them with aluminum foil (or anything for that matter) and don’t stack them on top of one another, until they’re ready to serve.
