Springtime Snack | Fried Green ‘Mators

Fried green tomatoes are one of my favorite appetizers, if cooked right.  You don’t want them too soggy or overly crispy, so if you make these it’s best to stand near the stove the whole time they are frying up.  {Hint Hint} Do not walk away to go vacuum or clean your child’s room while they cook to a golden-like color. I say this because I myself find it tempting to multitask on too many occasions.

Try and slice your tomatoes fairly thin, about 1/2 in.  Too thick makes them soggy inside and too thin makes them get overdone too quickly.  You want a little ‘mator with your batter ha!

Have a blessed day!
