A Southern classic, done the right way.
Use a mandoline to slice each tomato into eight 1/4-inch thick slices. Cook bacon in a cast iron skillet. Remove bacon and leave grease in the pan. Add additional oil if necessary and heat to medium.
Meanwhile, set up breading station using 4 shallow dishes. Put milk in the first; flour, salt, pepper and seasoning in the second; eggs in the third; cornmeal in the fourth. Dip a tomato slice in the milk, then the flour mixture, then the egg, then the cornmeal. Fry tomato slices for 2 minutes on each side. If they are browning too quickly, turn the heat down. They will need about 4 minutes total for the tomato to become slightly softened on the inside. Repeat with all tomato slices. Remove tomatoes and drain on a paper towel-covered plate. Serve warm.
Makes 16 slices.
Latkes, simply put, are potato pancakes. And though they traditionally aren’t much more than a glorified hash brown, there is a technique to frying them. I’ve had any number of latkes over the years and it took a lot of trial and error to get the “fry” just right. Here now, I share with you my method for frying latkes.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
