* Fried Green, not the movie

Whenever the momma or I go back to PA to visit, my grandma is always sure to have veggies from her garden to send back with us!! Zucchini, cucumbers, tomatoes.. all sorts of yummy stuff!! This week, she gave us some green tomatoes!! And what do we do with green tomatoes?? Fry them!!

Green tomatoes
Salt and Pepper (to taste)
oil (for frying)


Slice tomatoes
Dip tomato slice in egg bath, coat thoroughly and then dip into flour, again-coat thoroughly (I add salt and pepper to my egg dip and to my flour dip)
Place tomato in oil and fry till golden on one side, flip and cook until other side is golden. When they are finished frying, remove them from the pan, I like to place them on a plate that has a layer (or 2) of paper towels on it, in order to soak up some of the oil!
Lastly, Enjoy!

Delicious! Growing up I only ate them when Momma or Gram made them, but once I reached High School, I had decided it was time I finally make them for myself! Glad I did, because now, I get to share it with you!! Hope you all enjoy!!

Happy Eating!!
