Fried Green

Tomato BLT

Ingredients

  • 1-2 lbs of bacon

  • 3 Mac's Pride Green Tomatoes, sliced (1/4 inch thick)

  • 1/2 cup Blizzard Branch Yellow Cornmeal

  • 1/2 cup flour

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 1 egg

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil for frying

  • 1/2 tsp of each: salt & pepper

  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

  • 1/2 tsp sugar

  • Lettuce

  • White Bread

  • Mayo

Directions

1.  Cook bacon and set to the side.

2. Slice tomatoes about 1/4 inch.

3. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the milk and egg.  In a separate bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, and sugar.

4. Heat half the oil in a large skillet.  When the oil is shimmering and sputters if water is dropped in, it's the perfect temperature!

5. Dunk each tomato slice in the egg/milk mixture, then dredge in the cornmeal mixture until well coated.  Place in the hot skillet.  Repeat until the pan is full, but do not overcrowd.  Work in batches.

6.  Cook until the bottom is golden brown- about 3-4 minutes.  Flip carefully and cook until the other side is browned.  Place  the fried green tomatoes on a plate lined with paper towels (to soak up excess oil).

 7. Assemble the sandwiches with fried green tomato, bacon, lettuce, and mayo.
