Fried Green Tomatoes

We've had fried green tomatoes twice in the past two days and each time I tried a different recipe. My favorite was one from Fresh Everyday More Great Recipes From Foster's Market by Sara Foster. I just picked this book up a week or two ago and I've already made a handful of recipes and they've all been really good. Tomorrow I'll share the peach shortcake that I made using this was killer.

Plus, here is a little peak at the basket of goodies I brought home from the garden last night...this was all in one day. That garden is an amazing thing!

Fried Green Tomatoes
adapted form Fresh Everyday by Sara Foster

4 large green beefsteak tomatoes, cored and sliced 1/2 inch thick
1 t salt
1/2 t pepper
1/2 cup cornmeal
2 T sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup buttermilk
oil for frying

Season tomato slices with salt and pepper.  Stir the flour, cornmeal, sugar, 1 t salt, and pepper in a shallow pie pan or plate.  Whisk the egg and buttermilk together in a separate pie pan or shallow wide bowl.  Fill a large sauté pan 1/4 inch deep with oil.  Heat to 375 over medium high heat.  Dip slices of tomato into milk mixture and then place in cornmeal mixture.  Coat both sides and place in heated skillet. Fry until both sides have turned golden brown, about 2 minutes per side, trying to flip only once.  Remove from skillet and place on paper towel lined baking sheet and sprinkle with a bit more salt and pepper.
