Best Fried Green Tomatoes

In this video, you’ll see how to make classic fried green tomatoes. Discover how easy it is to make this traditional Southern treat. What a tasty way to use up those end-of-summer green tomatoes! Of course, this simple method also works with red tomatoes that aren’t too ripe—overly ripe tomatoes will get mushy when fried. Savory fried green tomatoes are a great starter or side dish served with other Southern favorites like fried chicken and barbecued ribs.

Tips- 1) better if slices are about 3/8 in. thick 2)salt and pepper before dredging 3) fry a tad more than shown in the video - the coating should be on the verge of burning 4) smear a thin layer of sour cream and onion dip just before serving

I agree with Lovebreezy, those look more like tomatillos instead of tomatoes!? If not, I sure would like to know what kind of a meaty mater that is! But looks good either way!
