Fried green tomatoes make a terrific side dish in the summer at a picnic or in the winter at a family meal. You can serve fried green tomatoes by themselves, with melted cheese, or smothered in special sauce.
There are lots of ways to fry your green or red tomatoes. Some people use bread crumbs, cracker crumbs, cornmeal, or flour. They can be dipped in beaten eggs before coating or coat them without eggs. You can salt and pepper them first, and use a little bacon grease for flavor.
