    List of Ingredients

    Fried Green Tomato and Mozzarella "BLTS"

    1 pound sliced bacon, cooked until crisp, drained on paper towels
    4 medium green tomatoes, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
    1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
    Salt to taste
    1/4 cup vegetable oil (more if needed)
    8 large slices white sandwich bread
    3/4 pound mozzarella, cut into 1/4-inch thick slices
    Fresh basil leaves


    Preheat broiler.
    In a small bowl coat tomato slices evenly with cornmeal and season with salt.
    In a large heavy skillet heat oil over medium heat until hot and cook
    tomatoes until golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes, adding more oil if needed. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
    On a baking sheet broil one side of bread slices about 3 inches from heat
    until golden.
    Make sandwiches by layering, on untoasted sides of bread, mozzarella, a few basil leaves, fried tomatoes and bacon. Top with remaining bread slices,
    toasted sides up.

    Makes 4 sandwiches.
