3 green tomatoes

2 cups vegetable oil

1 ½ cups self-rising flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 ½ cups buttermilk

2 eggs

Wash and slice the tomatoes into approximately 1/4-inch slices. Mix the buttermilk and eggs in a mixing bowl, adding one-half of the salt and pepper, and one tablespoon of flour. Mix well. Place the tomato slices in the buttermilk/egg mix. Preheat the oil to 350 degrees in a heavy skillet or electric fryer. Mix the remaining flour, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Toss the tomato slices into the flour. Place in the oil and fry until golden brown, turning two or three times. Cook until crisp and drain on paper towels. Serve immediately.
