About this time last year, I really started craving their fried green tomato sandwich. Seeing as they had closed their stores long before, it's not like I could drop in and get one. So I spent hours online, looking for a recipe. And this is the closest one I found. It takes a while to make, but it's so freaking good.
And even if you don't like tomatoes or anything else in it, try it. Honestly, I don't like 90 percent of the things this sandwhich is made of.
Flour (a couple cups)
Green tomatoes (three or so)
Cream (1/3 cup or so)
Parmesan cheese (like, a handful)
Red peppers (one)
To make the sauce:
Cut and roast [?] the peppers on the stove. (Make sure you get all the seeds out). Meanwhile, mix cream and parm in a saucepan to make a alfredo-ish sauce. Put the peppers into the sauce, and put it all into a food processor. Process until the sauce is pinkish and there are no major pepper pieces. put into fridge.
NOTE: if you're either lazy, stressed for time, or don't have these ingredients, there's another option. Get some alfredo sauce and some canned roasted red peppers. Drain the peppers. Put it all into a food processor. Process, and you're done.
To make the tomatoes:
Wash the tomatoes, and cut into think (about 1/3 inch) slices. Dip into flour/salt/pepper mixture, into whisked eggs, and back into flour mixture. Repeat.
Heat oil in a skillet, fry the tomatoes. Do this slowly, turning them only once.
Sprinkle mozzarella over rye bread, toast lightly in a toaster oven. Spread pepper-parm sauce over the bread, then put the tomatoes on. Cut in half, and enjoy!
