Recipe Information


  • 1 cup (225 ml) cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) flour
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) sugar
  • Oil for frying
  • 4 firm green tomatoes, sliced
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • In a shallow bowl, mix together the cornmeal, flour and sugar.
  • Dredge both sides of the tomatoes in mixture.
  • Press slices firmly into the corn meal mixture to make a good coating.
  • Add 1/4"" of oil to skillet and heat over medium-high heat.
  • Fry tomatoes about 2 minutes on each side.
  • When golden brown drain on paper towels.
  • Season with salt and pepper and serve hot.
This is my favorite version, I usually add a little more sugar than it calls for, though. I like to think of it as a NC dish, since that's my home and I love our Southern dishes!
