I FINALLY Made Fried Green Tomatoes!!

Fried Green Tomatoes” is one of my favorite movies. The food fight scene is probably THE BEST food fight scene, EVER. Every time I watch it I always tell myself I need to make fried green tomatoes but I never did until last week when I saw beautiful luscious large green tomatoes from Walmart. I grabbed a couple and planned on making ’em as a side dish to hamburgers for our Labor Day weekend grub. Cravings and curiosity, satisfied!

I recorded a video of it too but as always, don’t expect something Food Network worthy. I’ll try to navigate my small kitchen as I record more food and cooking videos in the future so please bear with me. The full recipe for Fried Green Tomatoes is posted after the video.
