I had seen this on a restaurant's menu, and I put it in my "arsenal" for the right time. I was able to purchase 10 lbs green tomatoes this summer, so I knew fried green tomatoes were in our future! The roasted red pepper mayo makes it. I can still taste how good they turned out!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Fried green tomatoes are one of my all-time favorite summertime indulgences! This sandwich really shows off the tomatoes' flavor by using light panko breadcrumbs as coating. The roasted red pepper mayo is the perfect finishing touch.

Ingredients

2
small green tomatoes
1 c
buttermilk
1/2 c
panko bread crumbs
1/2 c
self rising flour
vegetable oil for frying
salt, red pepper
4 slice
bacon (turkey bacon can be used)
1 c
lettuce leaves (iceberg or green leaf)
2 Tbsp
mayonnaise
2 Tbsp
roasted red pepper vinaigrette
4 slice
bread (any type)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Slice green tomatoes. Put in a colander and set in the sink. Sprinkle salt over them and let the excess liquid be drawn out. This should take about 30 minutes. Pour the buttermilk in one bowl. In another bowl, mix together the panko bread crumbs, flour, salt to taste, and red pepper. Heat approximately 1/2 cup vegetable oil in a skillet. Place the tomatoes in the buttermilk, then dredge through the panko mixture. Pan-fry until crispy. Drain on a cooling rack (so they won't get soggy).
2
Meanwhile, mix together roasted red pepper vinaigrette and mayo. Toast bread slices. Assemble sandwich with red pepper mayo, lettuce, bacon (2 slices per sandwich) and tomatoes.

Finally making this 2day! I saw this several mos ago but never got to a farmers mkt in our home town (city) to see if would even be able to find the tom's. But got real lucky while on vac in Maryland visiting our daughter & son-in-law this wk. We had stopped at a flea mkt (I haven't been to 1 in yrs) on our way to visiting a frnd in Virginia Beach & sum1 there had some fresh vege's :) I got so excited when I came up on the lovely grn tom's that had immediately caught my eye. This w/b all of our 1st time having them...can't wait! But its my 1st time (obviously, lol) making them so I hope they come out right.
