  • Slice the tomatoes 1/2 inch thick, but do not peel or core. Drain well between several thicknesses of paper toweling until most of the moisture of the tomatoes is absorbed.
  • While the tomatoes are draining, make a batter by beating the eggs until light, then mixing in the corn meal, water, minced chives, salt and pepper.
  • In a large heavy iron skillet, heat the butter or margarine until bubbly. Dip the tomato slices into batter, and brown quickly on both sides. Serve at once.


I made this after the movie named after this. I quickly fell in love with this Native American Delicacy. Home Tomato growers using those extra green tomatoes are the Best.

    A childhood memory; This recipe soon became a family favorite and thrifty way of using up all those delicious green tomatoes before the fall frost destroys them. Easy and quickly done. Its a Hit everytime.

    Correction, it's a southern dish. I grew up on these in the south. You go out back pick your green tomatoes, slice, roll in corn meal and fry in a mixture of oil and bacon drippings and enjoy! You get more of the taste from the green tomatoes and not all the breading.
