1/2 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp pepper
1 egg, beaten
1/2 c. milk or buttermilk
2-3 med. green tomatoes, sliced 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick
1. Combine egg and milk, set aside.
4. Fill skillet with 1/4 inch of bacon grease. Heat to medium.
5. Drop tomatoes in skillet. Cook for 2 minutes on each side (until golden brown).
6. Place on paper towel to let excess grease drain.
