Fried Green Tomatoes Recipe


Since the movie bearing the same title came out in 1991, this fried green tomatoes recipe has gotten popular. This favorite southern food has been discovered by other parts of the nation. Some people use dredge in beaten eggs first, then coat in cracker crumbs, breadcrumbs or as in this case, flour. Whatever coating you choose, the tomatoes need to be fried for that crispy outside, meaty inside effect.

For the full Fried Green Tomatoes experience, fry up a batch or two and call some girlfriends for a chick flick night. The movie is great, the food is greasy and incredibly tasty, and with that combination you’ll have a night you’ll remember.

Who can resist girlfriends that follow the motto “great friends help you get rid of the body”?
