Fried Green Tomatoes (ever watched the movie?)
1 cup flour
2 eggs beaten
1 cup dry bread crumbs (or even corn flakes)
1/2 cup shortening
2 to 3 green tomatoes, sliced 1/4 inch thick
Optional: ranch salad dressing
Place flour, eggs and bread crumbs each in separate small bowls. Heat shortening in a large skillet over medium heat. Dip each tomato slice in the flour, eggs, and then bread crumbs. Place dipped tomato slices in skillet and cook until golden brown which should take about 2 minutes on each side. Reduce heat to low and cook an additional 3 minutes or until tender.
Serve with dressing for dipping. Your kids will beg for their new treat!
