Fried Green Tomatoes With Sriracha Dipping Sauce

When your garden gives you green tomatoes, fry ’em up! This classic summer recipe is a delicious way to use up those garden tomatoes that just won’t budge. Enjoy them as an appetizer, at your cookout, or anytime – they could very well be the perfect summer snack!

Fried Green Tomatoes

3 medium firm green tomatoes
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
2/3 cup cornmeal
Vegetable oil for frying

Cut tomatoes into 1/4-inch thick slices and sprinkle slices with salt and pepper. Place flour, milk, eggs, and cornmeal in separate dishes. To a cast iron skillet, add about 1/4″ to 1/2 inch of oil, and heat on medium-high heat. Dredge each tomato slice in milk, flour, eggs, and then the cornmeal, in that order. Fry a few of the coated tomatoes at a time until golden brown, careful not to overcook. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve warm with Sriracha mayo for dipping.

Sriracha Mayo Dipping Sauce

1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Sriracha or sambal

Combine and serve with fried green tomatoes.

Cook’s Tip: Don’t stack the fried tomatoes while they’re cooling or they’ll become soggy.

This looks really good. However, if I can’t print off the recipe, to take to my kitchen, I can’t use it. Is there a way to print the recipe. I also, wanted to print the article on helping green tomatoes to ripen, such as the ones picked just before the first frost, but couldn’t find a way to do that.
