When I first heard of fried green tomatoes, it was because of the movie. But I could never imagine actually eating one of them! The whole ick factor and everything. I gave it a try though, and I liked them!
I thought I would give them a try with zucchini too, because well, fried zucchini is good. Most things that are fried are good. (fried twinkies? although I've never had them, I'd say NOT good. I don't even like twinkies!)
- bread crumbs
- oil to fry (I used my tub of bacon grease Mary got me to start keeping)
- green tomatoes, and zucchini
Dip the veggies in this order: egg, flour, egg, bread crumbs.
Heat up a large chunk of your bacon fat and start frying these boys up! You could also use a deep fryer, but a skillet works just fine.
