‘Tis the season for fried green tomatoes. My boss gave me about 6-7 green tomatoes and instead of letting them ripen, I decided to bread and freeze them until I was ready to eat them. Best. Decision. Ever.
Breading consisted of equal parts bread crumbs and corn meal with a little salt and pepper. Dip in egg, dip in batter. Place on sheet pan in freezer and then place in ziplock bag when frozen.
What makes this even better? When you are ready to fry them babies up, you don’t even have to thaw them out! Place them directly in your hot oil.
I served mine on toasted sourdough bread with thinly sliced purple onions and cilantro lime mayo.
