A hit movie was also named after this recipe. It's one of the first Southern recipes to be introduced to me by a neighbor when we were in Georgia. I've been hooked on them since then.

Very good. I have been over run with tomatos from my mother's garden. Thought that I would try various recipes for green tomatos. Good flavor with the breadcrumbs. I like them.
