Fried Green Tomatoes with Secret Ingredients

Sharing is caring!

Is there anything that says, “Southern” more than fried green tomatoes? The sweet and tangy tomato combined with that crunchy fried batter… are you salivating yet? My momma knows how to fry things–chicken, pies, squash, you name it. The secret to making the best fried food is in the batter. Read on to see what her secret ingredient is!

The secret ingredient is… Saltine crackers! In a food processor, crush a sleeve a saltine crackers.

Slice your tomatoes to the desired thickness.

Add about 1/4 cup of flour to a freezer bag with salt and pepper to taste.

Place the tomatoes in the bag, seal, and shake until the tomatoes are coated.

In a bowl, use a fork to beat together the milk and egg.

Shaking off the excess flour, dredge the tomato in the egg mixture, then coat the slice with cracker crumbs–be sure to lightly press the crumbs on the tomato.

Once you’ve coated all the tomato slices, heat the oil and fry in a single layer.

Place on a paper towel to catch the excess oil.

Enjoy!
