Fried green tomatoes

- Vegetable oil
- 4 green tomatoes, cut into 1/4 inch slices
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 4 eggs
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
- Pinch cayenne pepper


In a deep saucepan or deep fryer, preheat oil to medium high or 350 degrees F.
Season tomatoes, on both sides, with salt and pepper. Place flour in a shallow dish. In another shallow dish, beat eggs with milk. In a third dish, mix bread crumbs with cayenne. Dredge tomatoes through the flour, then the eggs and then through the bread crumbs. Add only a few pieces to the fryer at a time, so they can cook evenly, about 2 to 3 minutes. Allow to drain on brown paper bag. Serve with marinara sauce or ranch dressing ranch
