Fried Green Tomatoes

Does it get any more Southern than Fried Green Tomatoes? Chef Felicia shows you how it's done.

2 large green tomatoes, washed and cored


Freshly Ground Black Pepper

1 cup all purpose flour

2 eggs, beaten with 2 tbsp water

1 cup finely dried bread crumbs

2 cups canola oil

Slice each tomato into 1 inch slices.  Season both sides of the tomatoes with salt and pepper.  Let the tomatoes sit for 15 minutes.  Season the flour, egg wash, and bread crumbs separately with salt and pepper.  Dredge the tomatoes in the flour, coating completely.  Dip each tomato in the egg wash, letting the excess drip off.  Dredge the tomatoes in the bread crumbs, coating completely.  Heat the oil in a large frying pan; fry the tomatoes in batches until golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side.  Remove from the pan and drain on a paper-lined plate.  Season with salt. 

Makes: 8 tomatoes
