Ingredients for Bacon Aioli: 3 pieces cooked bacon ½ cup mayonnaise 3 tablespoons lemon juice 1 garlic clove Pinch of SplenDishes House Blend
Directions: Combine all ingredients in blender until creamy. Keep covered and refrigerated until ready to use.
Ingredients for Tomatoes: 3 large green tomatoes, sliced to about ¼” thickness 2/3 cup corn meal 1/3 cup all-purpose flour Pinch SplenDishes House Blend Pinch cayenne pepper ½-3/4 cup beer (I used NODA Hop Drop n Roll IPA) Vegetable oil, for frying SplenDishes Bourbon Bacon Salt, for finishing Fresh parsley, chopped for garnish
Directions: Heat vegetable oil in large skillet to 365-375 degrees. You only want about ½” of oil in the pan. In shallow bowl, whisk in just enough beer, until a batter-like consistency forms. You may need more or less than called for in recipe. Dip tomatoes into batter and carefully place into oil. Fry until golden brown, about 3-4 mins each side. Drain on paper towel and season with SplenDishes Bourbon Bacon Salt. Place tomatoes on platter, garnish with parsley. Serve hot alongside Bacon Aioli.
