I was thinking about frying up some green tomatoes tonight (to thin the herd on that one stupid determinate variety I just had to plant), and I was trying to think back on how my aunts used to do it. I was pretty sure they just used cornmeal (salt and pepper, dip in egg, dredge in cornmeal, pop in pan), but I went online to check and it seems everybody has their own different crazy recipe.
A lot of them add flour to the cornmeal, or flour before cornmeal, and some of them use crushed crackers or breadcrumbs and stuff. How do you guys do them? Are there drawbacks to any particular method? (And if you could tell me by 6:00 or so, that’d be great. )
