Fried Green Tomatoes
6 small-to-medium green tomatoes
1 can of beer
Salt & black 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 the 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 black pepper to taste; 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; allow excess to drip back into 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.
