Another southern favorite, these Fried Green Tomatoes are the perfect mix between crispy and soft.

If you want to impress, serve these Fried Green Tomatoes with a side of pinto beans and collard greens.

2 eggs
½ c. milk
1 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. cornmeal

Slice tomatoes ½ inch thick and set aside.
Mix eggs and milk in a medium bowl.
Scoop flour onto a plate and set aside.
Mix remaining dry ingredients with cornmeal and spread onto another plate.
Roll each tomato in flour, then dip in egg mixture, then roll in cornmeal mix.
In a large skillet, preheat the vegetable oil.
