Fried Green Tomatoes

Well, I made these with our garden tomatoes. And ate them all......really love these.


3 medium green tomatoes or 2 large green tomatoes, sliced about 1/4  to 1/3 inch thick.
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup buttermilk 
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cayenne pepper (optional) 
Vegetable oil

Whisk buttermilk & egg together. Put 1/2 the flour on a plate.. Thoroughly combine remaining flour, cornmeal, spices together on a second plate.
Dredge tomato slices in flour, then egg mixture. Then dredge in cornmeal mixture. 
Add enough oil to a large frying pan to completely cover the bottom and heat to high. Carefully add tomato slices to oil & cook until golden brown. About 2 minutes per side. Place fried green tomatoes on paper towels to "drain".  Serve alone or with a creamy dressing dip. Enjoy!!
