CLASSIC SOUTHERN FRIED GREEN TOMATOES
4 large firm green tomatoes
2 cups Bisquick
2 cups cornmeal
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 c Half and Half
3/4 t garlic powder
1/2 t ground black pepper
1/2 t celery salt
Mix dry ingredients together. Cut tomato slices into 1/4 in slices. Mix half & half with eggs. Coat tomatoes slices in egg wash then dredge in dry mix. Shake off excess. Fry in hot oil (350) until golden brown (about 5-7 minutes). Place on paper towels to soak up excess oil. Top with your favorite cheese.
Serve with your favorite sauce (make sure it has a little spice and pepper flavor. Options are red pepper cream and a spicy ranch).
