A short while back I dropped a truly Southern dish of Stewed Tomatoes and Okra onto the blog. While chatting up a windstorm about my new fangled Southern self, I mentioned an upcoming Fried Green Tomato recipe. Well get ready, because Southern cooking has never tasted better than these charmers right here.
Ever since attending the Food Blog Forum Conference back in September where I was served a Fried Green Tomato Slider that officially knocked my Northern rooted socks off, I’ve been wanting to try my hand at the little buggers. The other day while perusing through the spoils of my local farm stand, I finally stumbled upon the fruit that eluded me up to that point in my paltry culinary life – Green Tomatoes. I promptly snatched up two of the juicy unripe beauties and brought them home.
I proceeded to post a few options for how to cook them up on my facebook page. I had planned to either emulate the slider I so adored or attempt a fried green tomato BLT. However, one post caught my eye from a reader who said that she liked her fried green tomatoes with a side of, well, fried green tomatoes. Plain and simple. And why not. These show stoppers really don’t need any dressing up. They’re perfect just as they are. Serve them with the suggested sauce, or, if you’re feeling a bit adventurous, slide them between two slices of bread and create your very own Southern sandwich masterpiece.
