Fried Green Tomatoes

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Darlene Summers

Some people use plain meal, some use plain flour. I like the mixture of both, but however you coat them, they turn out just plain good. Ask any farmer, they will tell you.

I (and I alone since no one else in my family likes these!) really enjoyed these. I did reduce the cornmeal a little bit, but I enjoyed the flavor. Thanks for posting!
