Nothing says summer like tangy fried green tomatoes with a crisp, golden crust straight out of the frying pan.

Allow me to introduce my secret weapon for making the best fried green tomatoes.

I introduce to you: House of Autry Seafood Breader. Tada!

I like using this breader mix because there is no guess-work. The cornmeal-flour mixture is preseasoned with spices that compliment tomatoes beautifully. All you have to do is add a slight sprinkle of salt and fresh cracked black pepper to tomatoes straight out of the pan.

Getting the breader mix to adhere to the tomatoes can be tricky, but I can walk you through the simple process of breading the green tomatoes so that they will fry up beautifully every time.

Let me show you how I make fried green tomatoes:

How To Make Fried Green Tomatoes

Slice tomatoes as thin as possible. Usually, I try not to slice them no thicker than a quarter of an inch.

A food mandoline is a great tool to slice the tomatoes uniformly. Click HERE to learn more about how to purchase one.

Make a breading station:  Add the breader mix and some fresh cracked pepper to a small bowl. In a separate bowl crack and lightly beat one egg.

Dip tomato slices into the breader mix, then into the egg, then back into breader. (Repeat again if you want a thicker batter.)

Pour oil to a depth of ¼ to ½-inch in a large cast-iron skillet; heat to 375 degrees F. Drop tomatoes, in batches, into the hot oil, and cook 2 minutes on each side or until golden.

Drain on paper towels or a rack. Sprinkle hot tomatoes with salt.

I love these wonderfully fried beauties. It makes it hard to let the tomatoes ripen on the vine!
