I’ve got a quick and irresistible #recipe for the road, that you can enjoy on-the-go like me, or from a front porch swing on a lazy Saturday morning. It’s as simple as it sounds to make and take.
It’s a brand new year, and 2017 finds Some Kinda Good in its sixth year of inception. I wanted to take a moment to thank you for reading my posts and to share with you what this blog is all about. Continue reading “A Post to You, My Audience”
Fried Green Tomatoes
- 2 Large Green Tomatoes
- ½ cup cornmeal
- ½ cup all-purpose flour
- 1 Tablespoon of Old Bay Seasoning
- 1 Tablespoon of Garlic Powder
- 1 cup Plain Panko Bread Crumbs
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2 Tablespoons water or milk
- Kosher Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper to taste
- Vegetable Oil for frying
- Red Pepper Jelly
- Crumbled Goat Cheese
- Fresh Basil, chiffonade for garnish
Slice tomatoes about ¼ of an inch thick. Place them in a colander and season with salt. Allow them to drain in the sink for at least 30 minutes. Meanwhile, fill a cast iron skillet or 10-inch frying pan with vegetable oil halfway full and set over medium heat. The oil will be ready for frying when sizzling occurs after gently sprinkled with water. Set up a dredging station: In a small dish, use a fork to combine the cornmeal, flour, Old Bay, salt and pepper. In another small dish, combine the beaten egg with water or milk. In another small dish, combine the Panko bread crumbs with garlic powder. Dredge the tomatoes in the flour mixture, ensuring both sides and edges are evenly coated. Then dredge in the egg wash, followed by the bread crumbs. Shake off any excess before dropping the tomato slices into the hot oil. Fry the tomato slices until golden brown, turning once during cooking. Remove them from the oil and drain on paper towels. Place about 1 tablespoon of red pepper jelly on a serving plate and spread. Top with three fried green tomatoes per serving. Garnish with crumbled goat cheese and fresh basil.
