Fried Green Tomatoes are one of my most favorite summer foods. Each Spring I nearly count down the days at the Farmers Market, anxoiusly awaiting these lime green goodies!
Before I was Gluten Free, I ate these often. Egg and Flour batter. Simple and quick. But now that I'm no longer eating gluten...I was curious as to how I was going to pull this off.
First my boyfriend tried making them for me with a cornmeal and Sami's breadcrumb crust. These were OK, but not nearly as good as pre-gluten ones.
Well Saturday morning I figured it out! Thanks again to my sweet Auntie and her gifts of gluten-free mixes, I was able to make a delish fried green tomato with ease.
Gluten Free Pantry makes an all purpose flour and it worked great. You cut the tomatoes however thick you like them. (The thicker they are, the longer they cook) Coat the tomatoes with GF flour, then dip in a beaten egg, then back into the flour for a final coat. Fill a skillet with enough oil to almost cover the tomatoes (about 3/4 of the way up). Get the oil nice and hot and then fry them up! Cook on each side until golden brown. Let cool before enjoying!
