Fried Green Tomatoes
10 small-to-medium green tomatoes
1 can of beer
Salt & pepper to taste
Vegetable oil for cooking
Rinse tomatoes under cold water. Pat dry. Cut tomatoes into slices, about 1/4-inch thick. In a large bowl, combine Bisquick Baking mix with beer, using a whisk to mix. Use enough beer to make the batter liquid but not overly thick. Add salt and pepper to taste to the batter and stir. Heat enough vegetable oil to cover the bottom of a frying pan on medium to medium-high heat. Dredge the tomato slices in the batter, allowing the excess to drip back into the bowl. Place battered tomato slices in the hot oil and fry until golden brown on each side. Drain on a plate covered with paper towels.
Suggestions: Fried Green Tomatoes are best when served hot, but leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for a few days and reheated in the microwave.
Shenanchie's Note: I've never been able to find green tomatoes in the local grocery store. I simply pluck them from my own tomato plants. The use of Bisquick Baking Mix rather than all-purpose flour for the batter preparation gives an extra flavor and richness to the Fried Green Tomatoes.
