Back to the food. Tonight I made fried green tomatoes - my way. Sliced thin, seasoned, dredged in flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
Then I took the same mixture and added some lemon juice and beer. It foams up and makes a pancake-like batter.
Dip your tomatoes into the batter for complete coverage and fry up in a skillet with heated oil. It only takes a few minutes each side.
Now, you could just eat these as is and it would be fine. More than fine.
But you know me...I couldn't leave it alone.
I fried good bacon. Real good bacon.
I toasted fresh sliced ciabatta bread, lightly.
I made a garlic balsamic fig aoili - literally just mixed up stuff in the frig (balsamic vinegar, mayonnaise, brown mustard, fig preserves, fresh cracked pepper and minced garlic).
Do you see where I am going with this? Now some may call it a BLT, but I had no lettuce in the house and really, what could lettuce offer to this party?
I call it Bacon Tomato Royale.
