This summer I picked up green tomatoes at the farmers market with intentions of turning them into fried green tomatoes. Then a couple of days would go by and they would turn red. I did this at least 3 or 4 times this summer.

Last weekend I traveled home to Kentucky to visit family. My Aunt Carol gave me a couple of green tomatoes for fried green tomatoes. This time I was bound and determined to make them. Here’s my version of faux fried green tomatoes.

1 cup Weisenberger white corn meal

1 cup Gluten Free Bloomfield all-purpose flour

1 egg

1 medium green tomato

1 Tablespoon brown sugar

2 Tablespoon butter

Ranch dip

Hot Sauce


Preheat oven to 375

Place butter in skillet and warm in oven for 5 minutes

Slice tomatoes, place flour and corn meal on plates, whisk egg in bowl. Dip tomatoes in flour first, egg second, and corn meal last.

Place in warmed skillet, sprinkle brown sugar on each tomato

Cook at 375 for 10 minutes. Flip tomatoes. Cook an additional 5-8 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve immediately with ranch dressing and hot sauce.
