IngredientsFried Green Tomatoes

  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup low-fat (1% milk fat) milk
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon hot red pepper sauce, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ cup yellow cornmeal
  • 3 medium-size green tomatoes, sliced ¼ inch thick (1lb.)
  • 2 tablespoons corn oil or bacon drippings


  1. In a pie plate, whisk the egg, milk, and hot pepper sauce.  In a cup, mix the sugar, salt, and pepper.
  2. Spread the cornmeal on a plate.  Dip the tomato slices into the egg mixture, sprinkle with the sugar mixture, then coat with the cornmeal.
  3. In a 12 inch nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over moderate heat.  Slide in about half of the tomato slices, without crowding, and cook for 2 minutes on each side or until golden-brown; transfer to paper towels to drain.
  4. Repeat with the remaining oil and tomatoes.

Due to the tomatoes losing their crispy texture if left standing, it is recommended that they are serve immediately.
