The Best Fried Green Tomatoes Recipe

By Bellalimento

Fried Green Tomatoes are a Southern delicacy and are a must try if you have not. Whether you serve them as an appetizer, a side dish or even an afternoon snack they’ll disappear quickly. You’ll need medium-large sized firm green tomatoes to make these. A typical medium-large tomato will yield 4-5 slices.  Once battered and fried they have a beautiful crunch on the outside and are amazing juicy on the inside. They’re made even better when served with remoulade sauce for dipping.
