Description

Good Old Southern Side Dish made with fresh green tomatoes.

Ingredients

  • ⅛ gallons Cornmeal
  • ⅛ cups Sugar
  • ½ ounces, fluid Salt
  • 2 pinches Cayenne Pepper
  • ⅜ quarts Sour Cream Or Buttermilk
  • 4 whole Large Green Tomatoes
  • ⅛ quarts Vegetable Oil Or More As Needed

Preparation

In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients and pour the sour cream in a separate bowl.

Heat oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium to medium high heat and fry the tomato slices. Fry until they are golden brown and crisp. About 3 to 4 minutes on each side.

On our recent trip through the Southern States I was a bit disappointed with the Fried Green Tomatoes I had (in two or three different places). I’ll definitely give these a try – with buttermilk, since that’s how it was recommended by a Southern gal… ;-)

Oh. My. Goodness. Mmm..mm..mm. Takes me right back to my hometown in ‘Bama [*sigh*]. Though the sour cream certainly sounds intriguing, I highly recommend the buttermilk–me bein’ a seasoned southern gal and all, lol.

Super easy and delicious! I used Hot Salt instead of cayenne pepper, but I don’t think I added enough. I’d make it spicier next time.

Also, I’ve never heard of dredging things in sour cream before frying, but it was SO GOOD! My garden is producing tomatoes like crazy, so I’ll definitely be making these again. Thanks!
