    Yummy and there are so many ways to personalize this. I tried it with a mexican cheese mix and I sprinkled Emeril;s southwestern spice mix (google the recipe) on each layer. I have eaten almost half of the casserole myself!

    If you like fried green tomatoes, you will really like this! I made this for a family get together and it was enjoyed by everyone who likes fried green tomatoes. an hour a 400 degrees might be a tiny bit too long, I covered it at 50 minutes because it was getting too brown I don't think I would change anything else. I put the leftovers on a sandwich the next day. YUM

    I had to strip my tomato plants today since we're expecting our first frost tonight, and have lots & lots of green tomatoes. I wanted something easier than frying, and this fit the bill. Quite tasty, and so easy to put together! The only changes I made was to the seasoning-- less pepper, added some onion & garlic powder with some smoked paprika. I also used parmesan/romano blend in one of the cheese layers so I'd have enough cheddar for the top. I love the slight tartness baked with the buttery bread crumbs & cheese. Hubby hasn't tasted it yet, but I like this enough myself to make it again!

    My entire family "hates" fried green tomatoes! I had salvaged several pulled off the vine by deer in my garden. The family loved this recipe and gobbled it all down. THANKS!

    Yum, yum, yum. Served this for dinner guests last night, even though I don't usually do that on something untested. It made me hope that I have some more green tomatoes out there in my back yard! I skipped the butter and cut the cheese to 3/4 to lower the calories and it turned out great! Thanks for posting this!


Hi, I live in Georgia. I love to cook so when I found this site I thought I was in recipe heaven!! I love to collect old cookbooks. I seem to work more than being at home. The meals I cook are quick and easy as well as different. On Sundays, I try to cook a sit down southern meal. Oh yeah, the only thing I "HATE" about cooking is cleaning up!! <img src=""> <img src="">
