Fried Green Tomatoes

The cooler nights and shorter days can only mean one thing, we are nearing the end of tomato season here in Ohio. This year we had a terrible crop, mostly due to a lack of rain and the fact that we were too busy chasing little ones to tend to our garden like we should. As I cleaned out part of our garden beds today I noticed a lot of large, green tomatoes on one of our plants. Time to make Fried Green Tomatoes!


  • 4-5 Large Green Tomatoes
  • 1/2 Cup Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Bread Crumbs
  • 1 Tbs Creole Seasoning
  • Dash of Salt
  • Dash of Pepper
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 Cup Milk
  • 3 Tbs Butter


  1. Slice your tomatoes about a 1/4″ thick.
  2. Whisk together your egg and milk in a bowl.
  3. Combine your flour, bread crumbs, creole seasoning, salt, and pepper in another bowl or plate.
  4. Heat your butter in a pan over low to medium-low heat, preferably cast iron if you have it.
  5. Dredge each slice of tomato in the egg mixture and then coat it in the flour mixture.
  6. Fry your slices in batches until golden brown, flipping each slice once, about 3-4 minutes per side.
  7. Drain on a paper towel lined plate allowing them to cool slightly before eating.

We enjoyed ours with a Sriracha-Ranch dip. We combined 2 Tbs sriracha sauce with about a cup of our homemade ranch dressing. This made a nice and spicy sauce to dip our tomatoes in! Yum!
