I saw a recipe for a bacon, lettuce and fried green tomato recipe. It looked yummy. Of, course, I wanted to put my own spin on it.


Okay, so first you make the remoulade.


Use in amounts that suit your tastes

  • Zatarains creole mustard
  • Mayonnaise
  • Red chili sauce (not much)
  • Horseradish
  • Worcestershire sauce (a dash)
  • Garlic

Mix together. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Then, you fry the bacon.

Then, you fry the green tomatoes.


  • 4 to 6 green tomatoes
  • salt and pepper
  • Cajun seasoning
  • cornmeal
  • bacon grease or vegetable oil

Slice the tomatoes into 1/4 – 1/2-inch slices. Salt and pepper them to taste. Mix meal and Cajun seasoning. Dip the tomatoes in meal and fry in hot grease or oil about 3 minutes or until golden on bottom. Gently turn and fry the other side.

While the tomatoes are frying, toast some bread. This can be whatever you like. I lean towards an English muffin for this.

Then, you put it all together.

Now, that is some Southern Goodness!

Today’s Lagniappe: How to choose a green tomato

When choosing tomatoes for this recipe choose a nice,
really firm, tomato. Choose a tomato that is very light green
in color and sounds almost crispy when sliced.

But by checking out this recipe, I feel that you southerners are passionate about food as well. Your food sounds so satisfying and delicious. I will have to check your posts out more often.
