Fried Green Tomato Sandwiches With Spicy Mayo

For the Mayo:

1/2 c. Mayonnaise

1 Green Onion, Minced

1/2 Tsp. Cayenne Pepper

Salt and Pepper ( to taste)

For the Sandwiches:

6 Green Tomatoes, Sliced 1/4 to 1/2 Inch thick

1 c. Buttermilk

Salt and Pepper

1 1/2 c. Flour

1/2 c. Cornmeal

1/2 Tsp. Smoked Paprika

12 Slices of Bread

1/2 Tsp. Garlic Powder

Oil For Frying

(1.) In a bowl toss together the Buttermilk and Tomato slices together and chill covered for 1 hour.

(2.) In a bowl stir together the mayo, Onion, Cayenne, Salt and Pepper. Cover and chill for 1 hour so flavors and develop.

(3.) In another bowl whisk together the Flour, Cornmeal, Salt, Pepper, paprika and the Garlic powder. Set aside for a minute so you can heat up a large skillet.

(4.) Over medium heat Add enough oil to come up the pan about 1/2 inch.  Dip the Buttermilk Tomatoes into the Cornmeal/Flour Mixture and carefull place into the Hot oil.  Cook for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels. Only cook about 4 or 5 at a time depending on the size of the pan so you do not steam them instead of browning them. Allow the fried tomatoes to cool completely.

(5.) Spread some of the Spicy Mayo on both slices of bread and place two Fried Tomatoes on to one piece of bread and top with the other half of the bread. You can cut the sandwich in half  if you want. You can also leave out the Cayenne if  you want to serve it to kids.

This recipe is a great Sandwich recipe for the summer. I think that Fried Green tomatoes are a great Southern Staple. They are everywhere in the South during the Spring and Summer. If it is on a Sandwich or just as a side they are equally delicious.
