Fried Green Tomatoes - Page 2

post #31 of 53
Well, I have to say, we don't really eat that kind of food that often here in Southern California. I've never had biskets and white gravy, but it sounds good. I've never had grits in my life, and I don't think I've even seen them in person. They don't sound good. I've never had a fried green tomato, nor a fried red tomato. I LOVE tomato's though, so I'll bet I'd like em.

Sam,

They are like thick dinner rolls and drier. I don't know how else to describe them . Does that help? Maybe someone who has been to America can describe them to you in a way that you can relate Danielle where are you?

Sausage biscuits and gravy is one of my favorites. Here is how I make it....

Brown American sausage in a pan. Add flour until you get a thick flour substance . Add milk slowly until it forms into a gravy . Pour over biscuits and YUM

It's funny about biscuits and gravy sounding gross to others because I can't imagine gravy over potatoe fries as they do in Canada, but I bet it is good

I'd never heard of biscuits with white gravy until I read this thread!! It does sound delish though! Now fries and gravy is soooo good!! Even better, poutine, which is fries, cheese curds and gravy on top. YUMMY!!

I've always wanted to try fried green tomatoes, after seeing the movie. Haven't had the chance yet, maybe some day!

Yup! That works if your pan is large enough to accommodate them at the same time. But I'll take the delay, to make sure I get my "Dirty Eggs" -- which has come to be the name for that fry up in this house.

We call it cream gravy...and it is a very thick flour based gravy made with flour for thickener and cream or milk. It is wonderful served on chicken fried steak, and with sausage bits added at breakfast it is served on biscuits.

Biscuits are sort of like plain scones but much lighter and more moist.


Fried green tomatoes are delicious! My aunt Jetty used to fry them up with okra in the same pan...mmmmm!

The best fried green tomatoes I've eaten were in Tennessee. There the stores sell a cornmeal mix with flour & seasonings that is specifically for green tomatoes and/or catfish. A restaurant called Uncle Bud's Catfish House had them as appetizers & they were great.
For a lighter variation of biscuits & gravy, you can substitute chicken broth, herbs & crushed red pepper for the milk (can be made without extra salt - the sausages have plenty) and thicken it up with cornstarch - I've made biscuits & gravy like that for many, many people who cringe at the thought of regular biscuits & gravy, which can be too rich, salty & too much black pepper (though I LOVE traditional B&G) for some tummies, with great results.
Yum, I LOVE serving and eating good food!

Sam, I'm surprised you've never heard of it. It's awesome! I like mayo on fries too, though I don't think that's specifically a Canadian thing.

My husband loves them. I have never tried the but I have made plenty for him. We use a thin beer batter on them. He says they are great I just can't bring myself to try them

One of my co-workers cans green tomatoes like you would pickles. If you can them sliced (she adds a jalepeno pepper to each jar!) Pick a slice on your grilled hamburger. The have to be the soild green ones too-so she has a hard time with people wanting to sell her them.
The biscuits and gravy must be a more southern item as we never had it until very recently in wisconsin.
I like the familar brown gravy with my potatoes.

Ironically, this recipe is in the new Good Housekeeping magazine:

Grilled Green Tomato Focaccia Sandwiches
1 large lemon
1/2 c light mayo
1/2 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
1 lb green tomatoes (3 medium), cut int 1/2 inch thick slices
1/4 tsp salt
1 T olive oil
8 slices Canadian bacon
1 loaf focaccia bread, cut horizontally in half
1. Prepare outdoor grill for direct grilling over medium heat.
2. From lemon, grate 1 tsp peel and squeeze 2 T juice. In cup, combine lemon peel and juice, mayo and pepper.
3. Sprinkle tomato slices with salt; brush lightly with oil. Place tomatoes on hot grill rack and cook, uncovered, 6 to 7 minutes or until browned and slightly softened, turning slices over once. On same grill rack, cook Canadian bacon 2 minutes or until heated through, turning over once. Transfer tomatoes and bacon to platter. Place focaccia, cut sides down, on grill rack. Grill 3 to 4 minutes until lightly toasted.
4. Assemble sandwiches: Spread mayo mixture on cut sides of focaccia. On bottom half of focaccia, layer tomatoes, then Canadian bacon. replace top half of focaccia. Cut into 4 pieces to serve.
