Fried Green Tomatoes
3 green tomatoes, sliced 1/4 inch thick
3 cups canola oil (Bacon grease is better if you have it.)
3 Tsp cornmeal
2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp pepper
Pour oil into a skillet. Heat it on med-high. Crack the eggs into a small bowl. Pour in milk and whisk together. In another small bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, salt, and pepper.
Dredge the slices of green tomato (one a time) in the flour mixture. Shake of the excess and dip into the egg mixture. Now back in the flour mixture. Place the tomatoes in the hot oil and cook for 2 minutes on each side. Place the tomatoes on a paper toweled plate to drain the excess oil.
Serve with Ranch dressing. If you forgot the ranch (or don't like ranch) no worries...eat these little puppies plain and they are still the best thing you'll eat today.
