One of the best things about the classic BLT sandwich is its crunch. Here’s a version that delivers even more, thanks to an old-fashioned favorite: fried green tomatoes.
The tomatoes are coated with yellow cornmeal, then fried--a process that doesn’t take long. Crisp iceberg lettuce, high-quality smoked bacon and a thin slice of red onion are the rest of the fillings for this toasted sandwich.
Still want more crunch?
Open a bag of chips. Then serve cold beer alongside to wash down these BLFGT’s.
If you don’t have any green tomatoes in your garden, look for them at farmers markets or Latino markets, or ask your market’s produce department to order some for you.
