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.

Method:

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

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In 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.
2
While 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.
3
Working 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.
4
Combine sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
5
Chop or crumble the bacon into small pieces.
Layer the fried tomatoes, drizzle with pink chili sauce, and top with goat cheese crumbles and bacon.
