  • 4 unripened green tomatoes
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tbs milk
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp garlic powder

Comeback dressing

  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1 cup mayo
  • 1 tbs Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • salt & pepper, to taste


  1. Begin by slicing your tomatoes about 1/4″-1/2″ thick. In three separate shallow dishes, prepare your dredging station: 1. cornmeal 2. eggs + milk 3. cornmeal + spices. Dip you tomatoes into flour, egg, cornmeal, and then set aside to firm up.
  2. Heat a skillet with oil, about 1/4 way up the skillet. Once oil is ready {when a few flecks of flour sizzle when you sprinkle over top), fry your tomatoes. Place on paper towel to drain excess oil, and sprinkle with salt.
  3. To make the dressing combine all ingredients in bowl and whisk until really smooth. Can be stored in mason jar for up to two weeks in fridge.
  4. On your serving platter, layer tomato, pimento cheese, tomato, pimento cheese. After about the fifth layer, add a skewer through the top to hold everything in place. Drizzle dressing over top and serve immediately!
