Southern Style Fried Green Tomatoes

Natalie Loop


We love these little treasures and when it's time for these beauties this recipe becomes our lunch and dinner for at least a couple weeks until we've had our fill for the following season. Our youngest son enjoys these right along with us. These are with a little southern twist on them.
