Fried Green Tomatoes

"Jan Makes this every year when our garden stops producing tomatoes in the fall"
  1. 1 extra large egg
  2. 4 tablespoons milk
  3. 1 cup cornmeal
  4. 1 cup all-purpose flour
  5. 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (or bacon drippings)
  6. 3 green tomatoes, sliced.
  7. 1 tsp salt
  8. 1 tsp pepper
  9. 1 tsp paprika
  1. In a small bowl whisk together egg and milk. In another small bowl mix salt, pepper, paprika, cornmeal and flour.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat; use more or less oil to reach about 1/4 inch in depth.
  3. Dredge tomato slices first in egg mixture, then in cornmeal mixture. Carefully place slices in hot oil and cook until browned on both sides.
