Fried Green Tomatoes
Fried green tomatoes are a classic, but few people outside of the South attempt to make them. However, it's a versatile dish that is incredibly easy to make — they're great as a side dish, on top of a burger or sandwich, or as an appetizer. And kids tend to love them, too, so they are an easy addition to any family meal. The key to this dish is that the green tomatoes are more solid than riper tomatoes, and they hold up better to frying. Make sure to serve them piping hot and try to stick to Southern tradition by having a bit of pimento cheese on the side. Click here to see Green Tomatoes for Everyone.

This satisfying savory pie will scratch your tomato itch. Blind-baking the crust lessens its risk of becoming sodden, and starting with a bottom layer of cheese helps, too. Serve as a vegetarian main dish, or as a side dish at a cookout. Refrigerate leftovers for an enviable lunch the next day. If using a store-bought crust, roll it out a bit so that it fits the deep-dish pan.This recipe is by Robin Mather and was originally published in The Chicago Tribune.
