It doesn't get much more Southern than a fried green tomato! Fried Green Tomato Stackers are a hearty, savory nod to the low-country classic! It features a fried green tomato stacked on top of salty, crispy bacon and a fried red tomato. If that doesn't sound tasty enough, it's served with a creamy, zesty sauce that creates the perfect crispy, luscious combination. Is your mouth watering yet? Fried Green Tomato Stackers will make all your comfort food dreams come true!


1/4 cup fat-free mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon lime zest, grated
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 teaspoon fresh thyme, minced or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided

In a third shallow bowl, mix the cornmeal, salt, and the remaining pepper.

Step 6

Cut the green and red tomatoes crosswise into 4 slices each.

Repeat with the remaining tomato slices.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat the canola oil over medium heat.
