My husband and I decided to try a meet-up for foodies. It was a lot of fun, with some fabulous recipes, lots of food, and people that share an interest -- food! This was one of the recipes made that evening.

Saute

Ingredients

8
strips peppered bacon

BATTER

3/4 c
flour
1/4 c
stone-ground cornmeal
1 c
milk
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
pepper

TOMATOES

3 large
green tomatoes, sliced 1/4" thick
1/4 c
goat cheese crumbles
1/4 c
olive oil, plus more, as needed

PINK CHILI SAUCE

1/4 c
thousand island dressing
1 tsp
cajun spice blend or spicy chili powder
1 tsp
jalapeno pepper, chopped

Step-By-Step

1In a skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until brown and crisp. Drain on paper towel. Strain the grease into a cup and wipe the skillet with a paper towel.

2While bacon is cooking, combine flour, cornmeal, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Add milk and stir well. The mixture should resemble pancake batter.
Add olive oil to the cleaned skillet along with strained bacon grease (optional), and heat over medium.

3Working in batches, dip tomato slices in the batter, letting excess drip back into the bowl. Fry slices in the pan for 3 minutes per side or until golden brown. Add olive oil, as necessary, to complete the tomatoes. Drain tomato slices on paper towels.

4Combine sauce ingredients in a small bowl.

5Chop or crumble the bacon into small pieces.
Layer the fried tomatoes, drizzle with pink chili sauce, and top with goat cheese crumbles and bacon.
