One of my favorite end of summer meals is fried green tomatoes. At least for me they are and end of summer meal. We never get red tomatoes on the vine here – the hubby waits until he knows a hard frost is coming and he pulls the tomatoes off green, puts them in boxes in the basement and they ripen there. It works just fine for us and we still get to have tomatoes and the things I can make with them. But before I get red tomatoes and start making things like ketchup and pizza sauce I like to make this easy fried green tomatoes dinner. I am sure there will be some southern cooks who think I am a little bold calling mine the best fried green tomatoes recipe but we are all entitled to our opinion, right?

All I can write it try it and let me know!

  • Heat the oil in a heavy fry pan, like a cast iron pan. When the oil is hot fry the slices for about 2 – 3 minutes per side until they are golden brown.

How Were the Easy Fried Green Tomatoes?

I have learned with fried green tomatoes that people either love them or hate them. Here we love them. I look forward to having them a couple of times each summer. This year to be honest, I almost forgot about them! Then the hubby started pulling the tomatoes in and I (thankfully) remembered.

I served them one night with a side of Jasmine rice and a last cucumber of the season salad. We had them again a few nights later and I just made a big side salad. There does tend to be a little sauce leftover and it works really well as a salad dressing for the next night.
