The movie “Fried Green Tomatoes” has always been a favorite of mine. I remember how much I wanted to taste those fried green tomatoes Idgie made in her restaurant. It’s only right that I share my version of this southern classic with you.
It’s important to grab firm tomatoes. That guarantees freshness and prevents the tomatoes from being too mushy after frying. Green tomatoes are tart. I like to add a bit of granulated sugar to reduce that tang.
To ensure that the breading sticks to the tomatoes, we have to salt the slices and place them on paper towels. Allow them to rest. You’ll see all of that water soak onto the paper towels. This will give us crispier fried green tomatoes.
It’s okay to get lost in this sauce….just in time for V-Day!!
My Crawfish Alfredo Recipe is bomb! Most of my best recipes are beautiful accidents. So, a little background on this dish. March 2016, my town and the surrounding areas were literally underwater. A massive flood! So, many lost homes, clothing, etc. But, thank God lives were spared! During this time, roads were closed, so I was trapped inside. Boredom led me to my kitchen, per usual, and this baby was born….
Keep in mind that short-cut extruded pastas like penne, rigatoni, and cavatappi absorb more sauce, so double this recipe if you’re using any of those. Oh and top with chopped green onions. Hope you try and like this!
