Fried Green Tomatoes

Slice the tomatoes ½-inch thick.

Step 1

Gather three bowls. In one bowl whisk the buttermilk and eggs together. In another, add the flour. In the third, mix the breadcrumbs, cornstarch, and salt.

Step 2

 Take each slice of tomato and gently dip it into the flour, then the egg mix. Repeat this process once more, then dip the tomato into the breadcrumb mix.

Step 3

Heat the oil in a heavy-based pot to 375°F. Gently add the crumbed tomato into the oil and fry on each side until golden brown. Place onto a paper towel or a metal rack to drain.
