- 1/4 cup flour in one bowl,
- 1 egg and 1/2 cup milk (the recipe called for buttermilk, but milk worked fine) blended together in another, and
- 1/4 cup flour, 1/2 cup cornmeal, 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper in a third.
Dredge each tomato slice in the flour, then the egg and milk mixture, then the cornmeal mixture.
Given that fried green tomatoes from the south, I served them with grits. I had some stoneground grits in the freezer, but I didn't want to spend an hour stirring them constantly. A web search turned up this recipe for grits cooked in a crockpot. Another recipe included cream as well. I didn't have cooking spray, so I put a light coating of olive oil on the crockpot. I finished off the grits with a tablespoon of butter and a bit of cream.
The grits turned out pretty well, especially given that they did not require over an hour of hands on time. The crockpot did need to be soaked overnight and into the next day for clean up though.
