  1. I’ve never tried fried green tomatoes. I like tomatoes enough but the rest of my family doesn’t so I don’t buy them often.

  2. Wow! These sure look yummy! I’ve never had tomatillos before, but anything fried usually makes me very happy!

  3. Yum!! That looks great!

  4. That looks really good! What do you serve with it?

    • I use these as a side dish with most any meal! My daughter loves to dip them in Ranch Dressing as she dips EVERYTHING in ranch and my hubby and I like to use Jalapeno Pepper Jelly or just eat them plain! 🙂

  5. Thanks for this fun recipe reminder! It’s been years since I’ve had fried green tomatoes. It’s a classic, where I come from!
