Yes, and I was very disappointed because I thought green tomatoes would be tart but they're bland.

mmm that sounds good... i'd probably do bread crumbs but I've never had them that way, so not sure.

I think I've tried egg and flour, and egg and bread crumbs. Of course, you would have to season them.

They are tart because they are "green" tomatoes! I've never thought of them as tasting bland. Just more of a taste I need to get used to....

I've heard of the movie but never eaten them, no. I'm intrigued. Are they fried like deep-fried, or just pan-fried? Do they go soft?

I've only pan fried. They fry rather quickly, so the crust is crisp, which keeps the tomatoes from being limp....

Virginia, the ones I had were most definitely not tart. I was quite disappointed.

Oops! If they are green, they should be tart, because they are tomatoes that are not ripe!

Maybe it depends on the type of tomato??

I had never eaten them, so I did my best attempt at making them. They were ok - I probably should have eaten some 'real' ones before attempting to make them. Here's the details about what I did, along with comments from readers about what I should have done!

Maybe they were not green enough? (like closer to blushing) I had thought being green they'd be tart like an apple but that was not my experience.

A quart of oil? Sounds like deep frying to me!

I think you did it all right, pretty much the way I make them. And I just put enough oil in the pan to fry them.

When my DD and I were in Tenn. a couple years ago, we ate at a rustic restaurant near the cabin we were staying in, and they had fried green tomatoes on the menu so we ordered them. After eating them, I realized mine pretty much tasted the same. And they served them with ranch dressing.

I don't know what to tell you! All the ones I've eaten were pretty tart, like green tomatoes!
