Fried Green Tomato, Bacon and Pimento Sandwich

Fried Green Tomato, Bacon and Pimento Sandwich, homemade pimento cheese, crispy bacon, glorious fried green tomatoes sandwiched between two slices of golden toasted bread.  The ultimate summertime sandwich that sings the taste of the South.


What do you do when you have leftover fried green tomatoes, crispy bacon, and pimento cheese?  You guessed it, make Fried Green Tomato, Bacon and Pimento Sandwiches.  

I like to fry up a considerable amount of green tomatoes for a meal.  We love them leftover.  You may ask are they still crispy leftover.   My recipe for green fried tomatoes lends the best texture for leftovers.  

I always cook twice the amount of bacon for breakfast too for leftovers or to sprinkle on vegetables we have for supper.  

The pimento cheese is made ahead for a quick sandwich for lunch on most days.  Pimento Cheese will keep in the fridge for weeks.  An excellent snack to have with crackers watching tv.



I want to celebrate the end of summertime big time, and there is nothing that tastes like summer more than that of fried green tomatoes.  I have eaten a ton of fried green tomatoes by themselves as an appetizer, a side dish or with fried okra combo.  

But there is nothing like this Fried Green Tomato, Bacon and Pimento Sandwich for a hearty meal.  I served these sandwiches with some 14 Day Sun Pickles, and it was the perfect salty accompaniment to cut some of all that richness from the fried tomatoes, bacon, and pimento cheese. 


How to assemble the Fried Green Tomato, Bacon and Pimento Sandwich:
  • Spread a tablespoon mayonnaise on two pieces of toast.
  • Spread pimento cheese on one side of two pieces of toast with mayonnaise.
  • Place a piece of romaine lettuce on top of one of the pimento cheese toast face up
  • Place 2 pieces of bacon cut in half on top of the pimento cheese in n single layer on one piece of toast.
  • Place 2 pieces of fried green tomatoes on top of the bacon in a single layer
  • Place the second pimento cheese toast on the fried green tomato face down. 
  • Secure the sandwich to not move, cut the sandwich in half.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED FOR THE RECIPE
As the summer closes down, I hope you will try the grandeur of this summertime sandwich.  Enjoy!
