Patty's pick.

It is time for fresh-from-the-garden homegrown tomatoes in Mississippi, and no matter how you slice them, everyone loves a BLT. We love a fried green tomato sandwich or salad with a zesty remoulade sauce. So head to your garden or the local farmers market, and enjoy a slice of summertime!

FRIED GREEN TOMATOES


1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup burtermilk
1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
Salt and black pepper to taste
Oil for flying
2 to 3 green tomatoes, sliced 1/2 inch

Place flour, buttermilk, and breadcrumbs with salt and pepper into 3 separate bowls. Heat about 1/2 inch of oil in a skillet over medium heat. Dip each tomato slice into flour, then buttermilk, then breadcrumbs with seasonings. Fry in hot oil for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until crisp and lightly brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve on sandwich or with salad greens and Zesty Remoulade Sauce. Yield: about 8 slices
