Green Tomato BLT
I absolutely love tomatoes, any kind, any size. Being from the South, that includes fried green tomatoes. I created a special summer sandwich to show them off. —Hillian Holmgren, Del Rio, Texas
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
- 2 medium green tomatoes
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup cornmeal
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup 2% milk
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1/4 cup prepared ranch salad dressing
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 1 teaspoon snipped fresh dill or 1/4 teaspoon dill weed
- 2 onion rolls, split
- 4 cooked bacon strips
- 2 Bibb or Boston lettuce leaves
- Cut each tomato into 4 slices. In a shallow bowl, mix flour, cornmeal and salt. Pour milk into a separate shallow bowl. Dip tomato slices in milk, then in flour mixture, patting to help coating adhere.
- In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add tomato slices; cook until golden brown, 3-5 minutes on each side.
- Mix salad dressing, green onions and dill. Layer roll bottoms with bacon, lettuce and tomato slices. Spoon dressing mixture over tomatoes; add roll tops.
