Chef Tam’s Fried Green Tomatoes
2 Tablespoons of Sprinkle Me Baby By Chef Tam
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup milk or buttermilk
1 large egg
1/3 cup fine white cornmeal
1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup Wesson Canola Oil
Slice and lightly season green tomatoes. Cut unpeeled tomatoes into 1/2 inch slices. Sprinkle slices with Sprinkle Me Baby By Chef Tam. Let tomato slices stand for five minutes.
Set out shallow bowls with coating ingredients. While the seasoned green tomato slices are resting, place in three separate, shallow bowls: 1) the flour and Cajun seasoning (if using), 2) buttermilk and egg, and 3) breadcrumbs and cornmeal. Whisk together the egg and buttermilk.
Bread the tomato slices. Heat the oil in a skillet on medium heat. Dip the green tomato slices in the flour-seasoning, then the buttermilk-egg mixture, then the cornmeal-breadcrumb mix.
Fry the breaded tomatoes. In the skillet, fry half of the coated tomato slices at a time, for 3 to 5 minutes on each side or until brown. Set the cooked tomatoes on paper towels to drain. Add to your BLT sandwich! These fried green tomatoes are fantastic with a little ranch dip.
