Easy Fried Green Tomatoes with Sriracha Mayo - Lip Smackin' Good

I started the Lip Smackin’ Good brand because of my sheer love for country

cooking. This is why I’m so excited about this recipe, because it’s about as
Southern as it gets.

Fried green tomatoes are a staple in traditional Southern cooking. They’ve been
pleasing mouths and warming hearts for a very long time, and they’ll continue to
do so, for as long skillets and cornmeal sit atop kitchen shelves. This is a classic
side dish recipe, but our version here takes a few small creative liberties to give
your meal a little more spice and zing.

We’ve added in a unique spice blend that we selected for the batter and a
creamy Sriracha mayonnaise made from our famous ‘Slap Ya Pappy’ Sriracha
sauce that’s perfect for dipping.

If you’ve been curious about how to make fried green tomatoes, but you’ve never
tried because you lack experience in the kitchen, then you’re in luck! This recipe
is so simple that even a beginner can make it.


  • Waxed paper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon Lucky No. 7 Spice Blend
  • 2 pounds green tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 cup canola or vegetable oil for frying


  1. First, line a baking sheet with some waxed paper.
  2. Beat eggs and water in a shallow bowl.
  3. Place flour and cornmeal into 2 separate bowls. Season the cornmeal with the Lucky No. 7 seasoning.
  4. Dip each tomato slice into flour, then dip into the egg mixture. Press the tomato into cornmeal mix. Be sure to shake off the excess. Set tomato on prepared baking sheet, and repeat this process with the remaining tomato slices. Arrange the tomatoes in a single layer.
  5. Heat about ¼ inch oil in a large skillet over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Fry tomatoes in batches until golden and crisp. It should take about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Drain on plates lined with paper towels. Repeat with remaining tomatoes.


FOR THE Sriracha Mayonnaise:


    • 1 cup mayonnaise
    • ¼ cup Slap Ya Pappy Sriracha Sauce


    Mix the mayonnaise and Sriracha sauce in a small bowl. Not spicy enough for you? Too spicy? You can adjust by adding more Sriracha or more mayo, depending on your taste buds.

    Enjoy y'all!
