"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."

Delicious! Just made these. I never used the sugar before, but it was delicious and I think it complimented the tartness of the tomatoes. In fact, it tasted almost like a green apple! I used...

For 2 tomatoes, I only needed half of the butter, eggs, milk and flour that was listed in the recipe. Eat immediately, while still crisp.
