Fried Green Tomatoes | Peri's Place For Recipes


  • Green tomatoes sliced 1/4" to 1/3"
  • milk
  • flour
  • 5 eggs (beaten well)
  • Progresso Italian Bread Crumbs
  • Oil (vegetable, lard or peanut... my favorite is peanut)


  1. When coating tomatoes, be sure to coat completely.
  2. Dip tomato slices, one by one, in milk, then flour, next egg (this is the hard one... work on it good) then bread crumbs.
  3. Place on wax paper covered plate. Top layer with more wax paper before starting on second layer of tomatoes.
  4. Cover in plastic and place in fridge over night.
  5. The next day, heat a pan of oil (enough so the oil comes a little over half way up the tomatoes (1/3"?) on medium heat. Cook until both sides are nicely browned. Set on paper towels to absorb extra oil. Add a little salt immediately.
