Fried Green Tomatoes

Backyard tomatoes plants are common in Carolina Country — after all, there's nothing quite like a fresh-from-the-vine slicer. But red's not the only way to enjoy these garden goodies. If you've never tried making your own fried green tomatoes, this recipe is a breeze! Corn flakes make for a fool-proof breading.


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon fat-free milk
  • 1 cup cornflake crumbs
  • 4 medium green tomatoes, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1/4 cup canola oil


  1. In a shallow bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt and cayenne. In another shallow bowl, beat egg and milk. Place cornflake crumbs in a third bowl. Pat green tomato slices dry. Coat with flour mixture, dip into egg mixture, then coat with crumbs.

  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 4 teaspoons oil over medium heat. Fry tomato slices, four at a time, for 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown, adding more oil as needed. Drain on paper towels.

  3. Place fried tomatoes on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 4-5 minutes or until tender.
