'Fried Green Tomato BLT'
Source: Living in the South
2 firm green tomatoes, sliced 1/4 inch thick
2 cups vegetable oil, for deep-frying
1 cup buttermilk (regular works fine too)
2 cups self-rising flour
2 tablespoons black pepper
4 slices of bread (your preferred type)
6 strips of cooked bacon
**Optional remoulade sauce in place of Mayo)
1. In a large skillet, fry your bacon (if you're using pre-cooked bacon, which I recommend, then just heat it in the microwave for 10-15 seconds). Set aside.
2. Lay sliced tomatoes out on a paper towel and sprinkle with salt. Heat the oil in a deep skillet over medium-high heat.
3. Place the buttermilk (or regular milk) in a shallow dish. In another shallow dish mix together the flour and the pepper. Dip the tomato slices first in the buttermilk, then coat both sides in the flour mixture. Fry until golden brown on both sides (about 2-3 minutes per side). Remove from pan and place on a paper-towel to drain.
4. Toast your bread and smear both sides with mayo (or remoulade sauce). Top with lettuce, 3 strips of bacon and two slices of fried tomatoes. Enjoy!
