Top Rated Fried Green Tomato Recipes

Fried Green Tomatoes
Fried green tomatoes are a classic, but few people outside of the South attempt to make them. However, it's a versatile dish that is incredibly easy to make — they're great as a side dish, on top of a burger or sandwich, or as an appetizer. And kids tend to love them, too, so they are an easy addition to any family meal. The key to this dish is that the green tomatoes are more solid than riper tomatoes, and they hold up better to frying. Make sure to serve them piping hot and try to stick to Southern tradition by having a bit of pimento cheese on the side. Click here to see Green Tomatoes for Everyone.

Today, it is easy to find bacon as the star of many dishes, including cupcakes and flavored beer. But this breakfast treat’s humble beginnings as a lunchtime staple was birthed through the BLT. Typically, this sandwich is constructed of bacon, lettuce, and tomato piled between two slices of bread and slathered in mayo. Sandwich connoisseurs took this small finger sandwich from delicate to decadent with additions like cheese and avocado. With decadence in mind, we liked this recipe from chef Gerard Strong of Denver’s Central Bistro, featuring a fried green tomato, avocado, and a garlic aioli.  Click here to see 10 Classic Summer Sandwich Recipes

Sandwich
The BLT is the classic American sandwich. I haven’t run across one recipe that wasn’t screaming for a little slap and tickle of Southern refinement. Hence the fried green tomatoes and the guanciale. Guanciale is a pork jowl that has been cured but not smoked. It is a great substitution for bacon in the sandwich. It is as equally delightful if you crisp a few cubes to keep in your pocket and pop in your mouth to keep your spirits high and your breath desirable.

You may think there's nothing better than a fried green tomato at the peak of their season, but that's until you try them topped on a cheesey, gooey pizza.

Tempura Trout on Fried Green Tomatoes and Creamed Corn
This dish is a twist on a classic Southern staple, fried green tomatoes. Frying trout in tempura batter keeps it airy and crispy, and using fresh kernels for the creamed corn keeps the flavors fresh and light. This style of cooking is typical of the dishes we serve at Inovasi, which draw upon flavors from around the world to make innovative versions of familiar dishes. See all corn recipes.

Fried Green Tomato Hornworms
What does a tomato hornworm taste like? Well, what would you taste like if you'd been stuffing yourself solely with tomato leaves for the better part of a month? Hornworms, which are ridiculously rich in chlorophyll, taste great with just about any summer vegetable, but my favorite recipe draws inspiration from the cuisine of the Whistle Stop Café, that fictitious Alabama diner made famous by novelist Fannie Flagg.
