Delicious Dish Tuesday: Fried Green Tomatoes

Welcome to another week of Delicious Dish Tuesday... This week I am sharing my Fried Green Tomatoes with you.... I hope you enjoy it as much as I do... Also make sure you stop by the host's pages to see the great recipes they are showing and their favorite picks from last weeks recipes submitted Amanda of Coping with Frugality and Alesha of Full Time Mama... 
This recipe is yummy I hope you enjoy it!!

What You Need:
4 Large Firm Green Tomatoes
2 eggs
1/2 cup Buttermilk
1 cup flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup plain breadcrumbs
2 tsp coarse kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
vegetable oil for frying

What You Do:
Slice the tomatoes into 1/4 in thick slices and discard the ends.

Whisk the eggs and buttermilk together in a medium sized bowl. Place the flour onto a plate. Mix the cornmeal, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper on another plate. Dip the tomato slices into the flour to coat. Then dip them into the egg and milk mixture. Dredge in the breadcrumbs to completely coat.

In a large skillet pour the vegetable oil ( you'll need enough so that there is 1/2 inch of oil in the pan) and heat over medium heat. Place the tomatoes into the frying pan in batches of 4 to 5, depending on the size of your skillet. You do not want to crowd the tomatoes they should not touch each other. When the tomatoes are browned, flip them over and fry on the other side. Drain on a paper towel.
