Fried Green Tomato Sandwich 

Have you ever tried a Fried Green Tomato Sandwich! This is a very simple dish and practically anyone who can fry bacon or sausage can fix it! This is a melt in your mouth kind of recipe if you like fried green tomato sandwiches. 

A suggestion for this terrific dish is to serve on toasted bread! I love Garlic type bread and this is no exception for this sandwich.  I love this kind of stuff that you can mix and match and try different vegetables with. 

Supplies needed: 

We prefer a pre seasoned Cast Iron Skillet like the one below.

Cooking oil

Sharp knife
