How to Make Fried Green Tomatoes

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.
