Spicy Herb Fried Green Tomatoes
Ingredients
  • 1 8  ounce carton  dairy sour cream
  • 6  cloves garlic, minced
  • 1  tablespoon  snipped fresh cilantro
  • 1/8  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  cup  milk
  • 2  cups  crushed potato chips (about 5 ounces)
  • 1  tablespoon  snipped fresh thyme
  • 1/2  teaspoon  black pepper
  • 1/4  teaspoon  cayenne pepper
  • 1/2  cup  all-purpose flour
  • 2  large firm green tomatoes (about 1 pound total), sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 3  tablespoons  butter
  • 3  tablespoons  olive oil
Directions

1. In a small bowl combine sour cream, garlic, cilantro, and salt. Reserve half of the mixture for dipping. Place the remaining mixture in a shallow dish and whisk in milk until combined. In another shallow dish combine crushed potato chips, thyme, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Place flour in a third shallow dish.

2. Dip tomato slices in flour, turning to coat; shake off excess. Dip in sour cream-milk mixture, then in potato chip mixture.

3. In an extra-large skillet heat 2 tablespoons of the butter and 2 tablespoons of the oil over medium heat. Add half of the coated tomato slices; cook about 4 minutes or until crisp and golden, turning once halfway through cooking. Drain on paper towels. Add remaining butter and olive oil to skillet. Add remaining tomato slices; cook as above. Serve with reserved sour cream mixture.
