Weekly Recipe: Fried Green Tomatoes

This is one serving of the recipe
A southern favorite, green tomatoes are my all time favorite snack and appetizer. I was so happy to see green tomatoes in the store last week! I never really checked to see when their in season, I just grab them when I see them. I once ordered these as an appetizer in a local restaraunt and paid a whopping $8 for one serving!! They were worth it but here's my low cost version of $1-$2 a serving (depends on its availability where you live.) This recipe serves 2.

2 green tomatoes, cornmeal or all-purpose flour, frying oil

Heat oil in cast iron skillet over medium to medium high heat
Slice tomatoes (about the same thickness as for sandwiches)
Use all slices except the top slice with the stem
Coat slices on both sides with either cornmeal or flour
Fry in oil until golden brown on both sides
Remove and place tomatoes on paper towels to drain excess oil
Salt and pepper immediately to taste
