Fried Green tomatoes
There are plenty of ways to coat
and fry your tomatoes; use
bread crumbs, cracker crumbs,
cornmeal, or flour. Some people
dip them in beaten eggs before
dredging, while some just
dredge then fry. Salt and
pepper them first, and use a
little bacon grease for flavor if
you have it.
