Fried Green Tomatoes

Top Review by ~Bliss~

I just grew/picked my VERY first tomato ever, and wanted to enjoy it. I decided to try this recipe instead of ones using corn meal. I am so glad I did. It was delicious. I did use Splenda (one packet; one tomato) and I added a little bacon grease to the butter as someone suggested. <br/><br/>Next tomato I pick will meet it's end in the same way. Wonderful recipe.
