How to make fried green tomatoes

for more pics and info see -

Start by preheating a skillet (iron if you have it) and adding the vegetable oil (or bacon grease if you are making them for carnivores only) to cover bottom of pan about 1/4 inch high. Wash the tomatoes and cut into slices about 1/4 inch thick. Lay the slices out and cover them with salt and pepper, the top and bottom. Mix the egg with the buttermilk and set aside. Then set up an assembly line - flour, batter, corn meal, skillet. Dip the tomatoes in the flour, the egg mixture, and then dip into the corn meal last. Fry them about 3 minutes on each side until lightly golden brown. They are best when served while still warm, but good cold too.
