Fried green tomatoes are one of those dishes I didn’t fully appreciate until I was grown. These are one of my favorite treats, indulged in at my favorite meat and three restaurant as a side with beef tips in gravy over rice.
I haven’t made them at home in years. When I noticed the grocery store had a display of the green beauties I knew it was time to whip up a batch.
