I first tried fried green tomatoes at my friend's granny's house, who lived in Lousianna, about 10 years ago. Boy were they GOOD! I got her recipe and now I enjoy them every spring!

My husband declared this recipe for FGT the best he ever ate. He actually used a word I have never heard out of his mouth to describe them, and that word is "superb."
