"Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe" is one of my all time favourite movies, so much so that I was completely obsessed with it and it began my love affair with all things Southern. I've been making these for years - and they really are delectable. They also contribute to my big claim to fame: Some years ago I made the aquaintance of Michelle Williams and Heath Ledger through work and I made these for them one night with some fried chicken and gravy - AND they loved it! : )
Mix egg and Buttermilk in a shallow dish
Mix flour, cornmeal, and salt in another shallow dish
Working in batches, dip tomato slices into egg mixture - let excess drip off
Coat with flour mixture
Fry in hot oil or bacon drippings in a large heavy frypan until browned on both sides.
Drain on absorbant kitchen paper
Serve with Corn dip or chili maionnaise or the traditional way with Milk gravy (I'll put that up if anyone wants it)
Don't crowd the frypan or they'll go a soggy.
Bacon dripping is totally optional but the flavour it imparts is so good!
