Fried Green Tomatoes

Core and slice about 3 large unpeeled green tomatoes (about 1/4 inch thick). Salt and pepper sliced tomatoes and let sit for about 10 minutes.

There are four dips

#1 Buttermilk (or half and half, or just milk)

#2 flour

#3 2 eggs, beaten

#4 breading (bread crumbs and or corn meal) I use a mixture of both, mostly bread crumbs, and I dump some spices in... like paprika, garlic salt, or cayenne, whatever your fancy.

Dredge slices one by one in the four dips (in order presented) and place in hot oil (about 1/4 cup of olive oil, you'll need to replenish for next batch). Cook on each side for about 5-6 minutes. Optional-- you can place a piece of jack or cheddar cheese atop each piece.

Serve with favorite creamy dressing.... I like sour cream. But Ranch or Blue cheese work as well. Enjoy!!!
