I watched my grandmother make Fried Green Tomatoes back in the day. I watched her make them because I wanted to learn how to make Fried Green Tomatoes myself. She learned this easy recipe as a Southern dish; my grandmother was born in a Southern state called Mississippi. My first time eating Fried Green Tomatoes was a cool experience; they tasted a little sour, crunchy, and yummy.
Fried Green Tomatoes can be made as a main course meal, or a side order dish. If they are made as a main dish, you can sprinkle a little shredded cheese on top of the Fried Green Tomatoes as soon as they are taken out of the hot skillet. And if they are made as a side order dish, you can make your Fried Green Tomatoes as a side order for: chicken, fish, or beef. Fried Green Tomatoes also taste great with a small amount of ranch sauce pour on top.
