Since I married a woman from the South, and moved to Charlotte I thought it would be appropriate to learn how to make a few Southern dishes. And one of the dishes I learned to cook is Fried Green Tomatoes.
Last year our tomato plant worked overtime and we had lots of tomatoes ripening on the vine, while our fridge was filled with already ripened tomatoes. So, I had the perfect opportunity to try out a few different recipes. This is the one that worked best for me. It's now one of my favorites, and I'm stalking our tomato plant waiting for some green tomatoes.
