This is an old southern tradition and is great with fried chicken.  You can try it with ripe tomatoes

Fried Green Tomatoes

1 large egg
1/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp Wildtree Cajun Seasoning
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 cup cornmeal
5 medium size green tomatoes, sliced
2 tbsp bacon flavored grapeseed oil or bacon drippings

In a pie plate, whisk the egg, milk and cajun seasoning.  In a cup mix the sugar, salt and pepper. 
Spread the cornmeal on a plate.  Dip the tomato slices into the egg mixture, sprinkle with the
sugar mixture and then coat with cornmeal.

In a non-stick skillet, heat 1 tbsp of oil over medium heat.  Slide in about half of the tomato slices and
cook for about 2 minutes on each side, until brown.  Do not crowd.  Put on paper towels to drain.
Repeat until all the tomatoes are done.

Serve these immediately since they will lose their crispiness quickly.
