How to Make Fried Green Tomatoes


  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.
