I’ll take fried green tomatoes almost any way you throw them at me, but I like to boost the classic preparation of this Southern specialty by adding grated hard cheese to the breadcrumb mixture. The cheese melts into the crusts as they fry — tasty, of course, but also useful for keeping the breading together.
