We really enjoyed this messy bltsandwich prepared this way. I love lime cilantro mayo and it didn't disappoint. So glad that I tried this tasty recipe, thank you for sharing. Made FYC tag game..
- 4 ounces sliced bacon (4 slices)
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 large egg
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1/2 cup cornmeal
- Salt & pepper to taste
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 pound tomatoes (sliced, Roma tomatoes)
- Oil, for shallow frying (Becky suggested canola oil)
- 4 ounces sliced bread (4 slices, of choice, toasted)
- 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
- Lime juice (from 1/2 lime)
- 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
- Baby arugula
What You Will Need
- No special items are required.
Preheat oven to 400F. Place bacon strips on a baking sheet lined w/foil & bake for 15-20 min or until bacon is crisped to your liking. Drain bacon on paper towel & set aside. See NOTE below.
While bacon is cooking, place the flour in a shallow bowl, the egg & milk (whisked) in a 2nd shallow bowl & the cornmeal, salt, pepper & garlic powder in a 3rd shallow bowl.
Dip each tomato slice in the flour (patting to adhere), then in the egg & then finally in the cornmeal mixture. Press to adhere as much as possible. Set tomato slices on a plate lined w/wax paper.
Heat a lrg skillet w/the oil over high heat for about 2-3 min. When shimmering, it should be ready to add the tomatoes. They should immediately sizzle on contact. Put all the slices into the skillet & fry for 5-7 min, turning once. When the tomatoes are fried to golden brown, remove & place on a paper towel to drain.
In a sml bowl, stir together the mayo, lime juice & cilantro. Set aside.
TO SERVE: Generously apply the mayo to the inside of 2 pieces of toasted bread. Layer on the tomatoes, bacon & arugula. Top w/remaining slices of bread & cut in half. ENJOY!
NOTE: Most cooks have a preferred method for cooking bacon, so feel free to skillet cook the bacon or use your microwave
