I BLOG FOR FUN...

Feel free to pin photo's from this blog...I'm not one of those blogger's that will flip out and go on a rant about you "stealing" my photo's because you liked it enough to share it, lol. I am not a "professional decorator, cook, gardener" or "professional" anything else....I BLOG FOR FUN. Nope....not one of the perfect blogger's here. My house is not perfect, and you will never be led to believe it is. I simply cannot offer you "how-to's", nor will I leave comment's on your blog offering decorating advice...sorry. If you are one of the "professional blogger's" as I refer to so many of them these days, I simply am not interested in your invite to your linky parties...with YOUR strict instructions to follow YOUR rules, lol, in order to increase YOUR traffic. If your not here for enjoyment, then this simply isn't the blog for you.

Fried green tomato sandwich

Be warned.....there are lots of pictures in this post. I am hoping you can smell and taste the goodness in them.

Have you ever heard of a Fried Green Tomato sandwich?
You will never think of a "regular" sandwich the same way again once you have tasted this cheesy, buttery, greasy, oohey, goohey sandwich.

It starts with velveeta.....as far as I am concerned, this just can't be substituted.

Instead of pimento's, I use roasted sweet red peppers. They just add a "kick" that the pimento's do not have. Did I forget to tell you that we are making home made pimento and cheese?? Ya'll know I get to rambling sometimes....

A heaping spoon of your favorite mayo, and a dash of lemon juice. Mix all together and YUM! Refrigerate until needed.

A slab or two of bacon...I did mine in the microwave. It is the quickest and easiest way for me.

A pan full of fried green tomatoes....or two pans, lol. You will need to sample numerous slices of these to make sure they are just right for this sandwich :)

Now, I am almost ashamed to tell you about the bread....as if this sandwich needs more calories,  I used a five cheese garlic bread (great value from walmart). Just toast to melt the cheesy goodness on top, and start piling the fixing's on.

So now we have home made pimento and cheese (made with sweet, red, roasted peppers), bacon, fried green tomatoes, all piled on this scrumptious cheesy/garlic bread.

You can use whatever type of bread you choose, but this greasy, cheesy garlic bread sure compliments these "fixings". Just look at that cheesy/greasy goodness on top...it is on the bottom piece too :)

There is this little "sandwich" shop in Tupelo called Sweet Tea and Biscuits that serves these sandwiches. I have no idea what their recipe is, but the sandwiches there are sooo good that I had to come up with something similiar to make at home. So far, this works very well.

Enjoy!
