"This recipe comes from my mom and they are, hands down, the best fried green tomatoes. She makes these every summer with fresh tomatoes from her garden. My sister begs her to make them for her as soon as she sees tomatoes growing big and green on the vines. While most recipes call for breadcrumbs and oil, this one calls for flour and has you fry the tomatoes in butter, which helps give these an incredible flavor."

green tomatoes, sliced 1/3-inch thick
ground black pepper
1 1/4 cups
Wow- these are delicious! I left out the sugar, and subbed in 1/4 cup of cornmeal for the flour to give it some crunch.
NICE! This is a very nice recipe for fried green tomatoes. I mixed the sugar, salt, and pepper in a bowl then seasoned the tomatoes. I would have liked to have seen the flour stick better to the tomatoes but it could have been the type tomato I used had a smoother skin. This makes a nice side vegetable for seafood. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Brandilynn7!
