Fried green tomatoes are great served up as a side dish, but they are spectacular layered on top of homemade veggie burgers or served up inFried Green Tomato Po'boys!


  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup gluten free yellow cornmeal
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup all purpose gluten free flour, I used Better Batter
  • 3 medium sized, firm green tomatoes, cut into 1/3-inch-thick
  • peanut oil for frying

To serve


  1. Whisk together the egg and the buttermilk.
  2. In a shallow dish combine the cornmeal, baking powder, salt, pepper and 1/4 cup of the gluten free flour. Dredge the tomato slices in the remaining 1/2 cup of gluten free flour; dip in the egg mixture, and dredge in the cornmeal mixture.
  3. Pour the oil to a depth of 1/2 inch in a large cast iron skillet. Heat the oil to 350°F over medium-high heat. Drop the tomatoes, in batches, into hot oil and cook for 2 minutes or until golden. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle hot tomatoes with sea salt to taste.
