In My Garden

I can't decide if I should wait until they get red or pick them now and make this recipe. What would you do?

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

Cut unpeeled tomatoes into 1/2 inch slices. Sprinkle slices with salt and pepper. Let tomato slices stand for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, place flour, milk, eggs, and bread crumbs in separate shallow dishes. Heat 2 Tbsp of olive oil in a skillet on medium heat. Dip tomato slices in milk, then flour, then eggs, then bread crumbs. In the skillet, fry half of the coated tomato slices at a time, for 4-6 minutes on each side or until brown. As you cook the rest of the tomatoes, add olive oil as needed.
Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Yum. I haven't had friend green tomatoes in many years. My mother use to make them when they had their garden in the country. Thanks for stopping by dear lady!

I had never even heard of fried green tomatoes until the movie by that name came out. I've heard they are quite delicious but I've never tried them. I like mine nice and ripe :)

Oh! Marie my mouth is watering! We LOVE fried green tomatoes at our house. If you girls have never tried them you must. A bit of a tangy taste but so yummy. My MIL taught me to make them and we can't ever get enough.
We love our red tomatoes too but the green ones are a special summer treat you can't get later in the year.
Try it! ;-)
