Fried green tomatoes with crunchy breading: the ingredients and the recipe to prepare a delicious appetizer!

And then oil in the pot, here are photos, steps and videos to prepare the recipe!

Fried green tomatoes: history and origin of the dish
In this dish we find all the aromas of South America in the Thirties. In Fannie Flagg's book we find ourselves in the town of Whistle Stop, in a café where Idgie and Ruth find shelter from the dangers of the world.
The two women are forerunners of the times: they are young, self-sufficient (the bar is theirs) and have many black friends . Thread of the story? Fried green tomato…
Fried green tomatoes: variations and suggestions
You can enrich the croquettes with a delicious cheese mousse : prepare it by mixing the spreadable cheese with the chopped basil, cover with plastic wrap and keep aside. When serving, top your fried green tomatoes with a quenelle of cheese mousse.
Cornmeal can be substituted for panko, a breadcrumb made from Japanese white bread. Widely used to make frying lighter, in fact, panko does not fry during cooking like classic breadcrumbs and is also perfect for frying meat and fish which will not get soaked in oil during frying.
Another dish that we recommend is dogfish with green tomatoes .
We recommend consuming the tomato dish at the moment, in fact, frying is very good immediately, then as the hours go by it begins to soak the vegetables and becomes unattractive. We also advise against freezing in the freezer.
