fried green tomatoes

Fried Green Tomatoes – pretty much the definition of Southern comfort. My Aunt Deb showed us how to fry them to golden perfection in our recent visit to the Midwest. Funny, they almost taste like fish n chips and definitely make you feel right at home. These are great on their own or topped off with your favorite sauce.

This is the classic fried green tomatoes recipe so grab your green tomatoes and here’s what you’ll need (it’s really simple!):

  • Flour
  • Breadcrumbs
  • Egg
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Oil

Aren’t recipes like this the best? Bet you have all these ingredients waiting for you.

Slice your tomatoes in not-too-thin-not-too-thick slices. Deb’s slicing is impressive – look at those perfect slices!
