To make Martha Stewart's cornmeal fried green tomatoes, place 1/2 cup of cornmeal, 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour and 2 large beaten eggs into three separate bowls. Season each prepared bowl with 1/2 teaspoon of seafood seasoning. Cut two medium green tomatoes into four slices, discarding the ends. In an assembly fashion, dip each tomato slice into the flour, then the egg mixture, and lastly into the cornmeal. Fry the coated tomatoes for three minutes on each side in a large saucepan over medium heat with 1/2 cup of vegetable oil. Sprinkle with salt when done.

Better Homes and Garden's spicy herb fried green tomatoes requires three bowls for dredging as well, one with 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour. Fill the second bowl with 8 ounces of sour cream, 6 cloves of minced garlic, 1 tablespoon of snipped cilantro and 1/8 teaspoon of salt. Reserve half of this mixture for dipping after the tomatoes are cooked. Add in 1/4 cup of milk to the original mixture used for coating the tomato slices prior to cooking. Fill the third bowl with 2 cups of crushed potato chips, 1 tablespoon of snipped thyme, 1/2 teaspoon of pepper and 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper. Dip each slice of tomato into each bowl in the order listed above. Fry them in 2 tablespoons of butter and 2 tablespoons of oil for four minutes on each side.
