Ever since their role in the feature film of the same name, the popularity of fried green tomatoes has grown. They can be found in many farmers markets and even supermarkets.
Our Green Tomato BLT is an old time favorite sandwich with a Southern flair twist.
Serve it with our delicious Aioli mayonnaise. The mayonnaise is easy to prepare and can also be used on other sandwich’s and a nice dip for vegetables. It’s just a fancier way to serve mayonnaise.
Top it off with a slice of Limeade Pie that everyone will enjoy.
Fried Green Tomato BLT
You will need bread, I used a nice hearty type of bread. Bacon cooked, two slices per sandwich. Arugula or your favorite greens about 2 cups.
3 firm green tomatoes, sliced. 1 egg
1/2 cup buttermilk 1/2 cup plain flour
3/4 cup cornmeal Vegetable oil for frying
In bowl combine milk and egg, set aside.
Mix together flour and cornmeal. Heat oil in large skillet. Dip sliced tomato in flour mixture, then egg mixture, then flour mixture again. Cook about 3 minutes per side until golden. Drain.
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Combine all of the above ingredients and chill.
For Sandwich: lay bread on work surface and lightly spread with aioli mayonnaise. Top with fried green tomatoes, bacon and arugula. Close the sandwich and cut in half to serve. You can use plain mayonnaise also if you prefer.
