Fried Green Tomatoes

I never imagined I'd end up with as many tomatoes on the vine as we currently have; I'm thrilled!  I decided to try my hand at Fried Green Tomatoes and they certainly were yummy.

Here's what I did:

Fried Green Tomatoes
Vegetable Oil
4-5 Med. to Large size Green Tomatoes
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
1/2 cup ea., Yellow Corn Meal & All Purpose Flour for a separate bowl
Cajun Seasoning

After washing and slicing my tomatoes, I beat two eggs in a medium sized bowl.  In a second bowl, I added a 1/2 cup plain All Purpose Flour.  In the third bowl, I combined a 1/2 cup of each, Yellow Corn Meal & AP Flour.  I seasoned this with Ragin' Cajun Seasoning, but feel free to use any kind of seasoned salt that you like. 

Once you have your dredging line up ready to go, heat oil a 1/4" deep in a cast iron skillet.  Make sure your oil is hot before you add your first batch to fry or else you'll end up with an oil saturated tomato.  Once your skillet has a good sizzle, start adding your tomatoes.  Once they're finished frying, place on a paper towel lined plate.

We served these with Ranch dressing for dipping.
