Cheapest way to make fried green tomatoes that are crunchy on the outside, and taste like apple pie on the inside. Great side-dish for any meal!

Very good starting point for Fried Green Tomatoes. I like my breading to have a bit more seasoning. But I really did enjoy this recipe, I made it just as the recipe directed. The end result was good.

This is the first time this Northern girl even tried Fried Green Tomatoes. I found this recipe and I must say "Yum!" I used flour instead of cornmeal as I was out and dipped the tomato slices in milk before I dipped them in my flour mixture. I am impressed with the simplicity of this recipe. I will definitely make again.
