Fried Green Tomato BLT

Slice 2 small green tomatoes into 4 slices each and soak in buttermilk for about 20 minutes. While they soak get the rest of the ingredients together.

4 slices of bread, toasted 

2 slices of Swiss or favorite cheese

4 or 5 turkey slices for each sandwich

4 slices of cooked bacon


Secret sauce: equal parts of mayo and pepper jelly

To make the fried tomatoes mix ½ c flour and ½ c corn meal with about 1 tsp each salt and pepper. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and add ½ inch of canola oil. Dip each tomato slice in the flour and cornmeal mixture, coating both sides, and fry till golden brown. Drain on paper towels. 

To assemble your sandwich, spread two pieces of toast with mayo mixture. Add cheese, turkey, tomatoes, bacon and lettuce to one piece of toast. Top with second toast, cut in half and prepare to be delighted. Oh, I forgot…make two or someone might steal half of yours!
