Fried Green Tomato Egg Sandwiches with Applewood Smoked Bacon, Avocado, Cheddar, and Spicy Aioli



I made these sandwiches as a office of my family unit’s Easter brunch this yr. They are my take on a sandwich that I take had at Miss Shirley’second, one of my favorite places to get for brunch inwards Baltimore.

Hiss Shirley’sec has this sandwich called the Southern Slammer Sandwich, which has fried greenish Lycopersicon esculentum, applewood-smoked bacon, smashed avocado, cheddar cheese, together with a fried egg on pumpernickel bread.

I added the spicy aioli in addition to made trivial cheesy thin egg omelettes rather than the fried egg, together with I likewise used a hearty grainy breadstuff rather than pumpernickel. For anyone that loves brunch too loaded sandwiches, yous must make these!

Bread of your choice, sliced into 1/two-3/four inward. thick slices, depending on how many sandwiches you lot’re making (heartier breads operate meliorate)

ii fried dark-green tomatoes, sliced into one/iv in. slices (You volition take leftover if you are solely making this sandwich for two-three people)

ii T. milk

iv-half-dozen eggs (ii for coating the tomatoes, ii-4 for the sandwich)

two/iii c. flour

1/four c. cornmeal

one/4 c. breadcrumbs

one tsp. garlic pulverisation

ane/four tsp. cayenne

1-2 avocados (depending on how many sandwiches y'all’re making)

Sharp cheddar cheese, shredded or cutting into thin slices (depending on how many sandwiches y'all are making..I used a 16-eighteen month aged New York Sharp Cheddar)

i/three c. evidently Greek yogurt

Next, make the fried greenish tomatoes. Set upwards three shallow bowls inward a row. The outset with flour, the instant with ii eggs in addition to ii T. of milk, and the tertiary alongside the cornmeal, breadcrumbs, garlic pulverisation, cayenne, in addition to common salt as well as pepper. Make sure yous trounce the eggs in addition to milk together and stir the breadcrumb mixture. Set the slices of fried greenish Lycopersicon esculentum on paper towels in addition to sprinkle with common salt. Let sit down for five minutes or so. This helps to draw out the moisture of the tomatoes so that the batter is crispy and sticks to the tomatoes.

First, coat the slices in flour, milkshake off the excess, then the egg, together with and so coat in the breadcrumb mixture. Repeat until all the slices are coated.

Heat a big nonstick skillet over medium/high estrus, too add iii T. of olive crude or crude of your option. Fry the tomato slices for about ii-3 minutes on each side or until aureate brown. Let drain on newspaper towels.

Once they have cooled, cut inwards one-half or to the size to jibe the sandwiches.

To get together the sandwiches, toast the bread slices, so spread both slices generously with the aioli. Then, hit avocado slices into both sides of the staff of life. Next, elevation amongst a mini egg omelette, a fried light-green love apple, in addition to finally a slice or two of bacon. Top amongst other one-half of the breadstuff, as well as cutting in half. You are going to involve a heavy duty knife to go through this sandwich!
