My husband is such a HUGE fan of FRIED GREEN TOMATOES.  Me.....not so much, but I do like fried squash! This recipe you can use for both.  My husband and I have tried several different batters for this, and just never could find one we truly liked...until now!  This recipe uses seasoned fish breading.  The great thing about this is, they have so many varieties to choose from!  Wheather you like spicy, medium, or mild, you can probably find a breading you like.  Try this out and see what you think!

Green tomatoes or Yellow squash
fish breading
olive oil
3 shallow dishes ( I use glass pie plates)

First set up a breading station.  Beat 2-3 eggs in one of the  shallow dishes.  In the next dish put the flour, and the last dish, the breading.  Heat enough olive oil in a frying pan; add butter.  Slice tomatoes and/or squash about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.  Dip
tomatoes/squash into egg, then into flour, back into egg, and lastly into the breading.  Place slices into hot grease, and fry 2-3 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned.  Drain on paper towels and serve hot.
