Fried Green Tomato BLT

Fried Green Tomatoes
2 cups Panko breadcrumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
2 cups buttermilk
2 cups flour
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1/4 cup peanut oil
6 to 8 thick slices green tomatoes

For the sandwiches
Sliced Asiago Cheese
6 to 8 slices apple wood-smoked bacon — fried crisp and drained
1 cup Arugula
Frank’s Red Hot Sauce

Challah Bread — sliced thick and toasted

Preparing the tomatoes, combine the Panko breadcrumbs and Parmesan in a shallow bowl. Pour the buttermilk into another shallow bowl. Season the flour lightly with salt and pepper, place in a 3rd shallow bowl. Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Once the pan is warmed, pour in the oil and get it to bubbling hot. Dredge the tomato slices in the flour, buttermilk, then the breadcrumb mixture. Place into pan, not crowding tomatoes and brown 2 minutes on first side. Flip and repeat on second side. Drain on paper towels and season with salt and pepper lightly if desired.

Cut 4- 1/2- inch- thick slices from the Challah.

Assemble sandwich by spreading the mayonnaise on each Challah slice. Build the sandwich with sliced Asiago, 3 to 4 Fried Green Tomatoes splashed with hot sauce, 3 to 4 slices of bacon, arugula and finish with top piece of toasted Challah. Cut into halves on a diagonal.

Serves: 2
