Texas Monthly staffer Brandi Nance tested the recipe from Hoover’s Cooking. She likes fried green tomatoes so much that she wanted to share her family’s own recipe.


2 cups vinegar (we recommend red-wine vinegar)


1 cup cornmeal
1 cup flour
salt and pepper to taste

Cut 5 green tomatoes into 1/4-inch slices. Marinade in vinegar for 20 minutes or longer. Cover tomatoes completely in breading mix. Fry at 350 degrees for approximately 3 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle lightly with Parmesan. Approximate serving size is 3 or 4 slices; makes 10 servings.
