Fried Green Tomato BLT Sandwich

What you’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 3 cups canola oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 green tomatoes(sliced 1/4-inch thick)
  • 3 tablespoons cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground pepper
  • lettuce
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 4 slices bread
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • mayonnaise as preferred

Preparation instructions:

  1. Pour the canola oil into a small pot. Heat the pot to 365 degrees.
  2. While the pot is heating, preheat your oven to 225 degrees and place your wire rack on top of a sheet pan inside the oven.
  3. Crack the two eggs into a small bowl, then add milk. Whisk the eggs and milk together.
  4. In a separate small bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour, salt and pepper.
  5. Coat the slices of green tomato in the flour mixture one at a time. Shake off the extra flour, then toss them in the egg wash to coat them thoroughly. Transfer them back to the flour mixture one more time.
  6. Toss the tomato slices in the hot oil and let them cook for 2 minutes on each side. Place them in the oven on the wire rack when finished frying.
  7. Construct your sandwiches by spreading mayonnaise on one side of each piece of bread and sprinkling them with salt and pepper. Top the mayonnaise with bacon, then lettuce, and finally, the fried green tomatoes. Place the other piece of bread on top and serve hot.
