This recipe is exceptional! A must try in my opinion!!! A nice flavor and the crisp fried tomatoes are a welcome addition to any table. A good way to use up produce at summers end! Nice for a side dish and I could make a meal out of them myself!!!!

We have been making these in my family since I can remember. My mother absolutely loves them! The only thing we do different is to add lots of black pepper to the flour (tomatoes and pepper goes so good together). Fried green Tomatoes are wonderful in the summertime! Thanks for posting P.S. Snowman is right it HAS to be a cast iron skillet!
