    sassafrasnanc's Note:

    People beg me to make these sandwiches. It's a great way to use extra tomatoes from your garden. Some grocery stores carry green tomatoes year round. This is my very favorite sandwich ever. The fresh mozzarella cheese can be substituted with regular mozzarella but it won't be a yummy! You can also use Tempeh Bacon for a vegetarian version (not vegan).

      This is one fantastic sandwich! The bread was Artisan Sourdough Garlic Bread and for the cornmeal, Cornbread Mix. The tomatoes were fresh from my garden. I reduced the amount of bacon to 2 thick slices per sandwich and even with that this sandwich is a handful but delicious. Thanks for posting and for pointing me in the direction of this wonderful creation.

      This was an okay tasting sandwich, although I couldn't find "self-rising cornmeal," just regular cornmeal. Green tomatoes were also hard to find. I dipped the red tomatoes in cornmeal and fried as per instructions and used store bought chipotle mayonnaise, but family thought it was just okay, nothing special. I don't think I'll try this one again.
