Fried Green Tomatoes on the Grill

Wednesday, July 28, 2010 @ 02:07 PM

I love fried green tomatoes. My landlord in Florida used to go to the local farmers’ market and buy a bushel of green tomatoes at least once a year. He was on his own, so he always had plenty to spare. You can deep fry these indoors, or if you have a side burner on your grill, you can deep fry them outdoors as well. You can use a stove top deep fryer, but a cast iron skillet will do.

Cut the ends off the green tomatoes & discard. Slice tomatoes about 1\4″ thick.

Get yourself some flour, beaten eggs & Italian seasoned bread crumbs. The amount will all depend on how many people you’re feeding & how many green tomatoes you have.

First, dredge your green tomatoes in flour. This is an added step I never found necessary, but for sake of argument, we are going to do it today. Next dredge the tomatoes in egg wash, and then coat with Italian seasoned bread crumbs.

Heat oil on the side burner of your grill to 350 degrees. Fry the tomatoes until they are golden brown on both sides, about 4-5 mins. Place on plate lined with paper towels to drain. Shake on the salt & pepper & serve immediately.
