This recipe is from a restaurant called "Fried Green Tomatoes" in Galena, Illinois. We visit every year in the fall for our anniversary when the views are spectacular! This version is simple and has no garlic which hubby cannot have. I'm sure you could add it if you'd like! I have made it on special occasions as a nice "surprise"...
