Fried Green Tomatoes and Pimento Cheese Hot Dogs
I basically took two of my favorite things, pimento cheese and fried green tomatoes, and stuffed them in a hot dog bun alongside a nearly burnt hot dog.
Servings 4 hot dogs
- 4 hot dogs
- 4 hot dog buns
- 1 green tomato
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 cup milk
- Vegetable oil, for frying the tomatoes
- 1 recipe Pimento Cheese (you'll only use a portion, but it's good to have extra on hand for snacking emergencies! Also, swap the monterey jack with Cracker Barrel's Jalapeno cheese for a kick!)
- Mustard, for topping
Add about an inch of oil to a deep skillet. Heat over medium heat to 350 degrees.
In a shallow bowl, combine the flour, salt, and pepper. In a second bowl, add the milk.
Slice the tomato into 1/4 inch thick slices and then slice in half. Dip each tomato piece into the milk and then dredge in the flour. Working in batches, fry the tomatoes until golden brown on each side, about 4 minutes total. Drain on a paper towel lined plate.
Cook hot dogs on the grill until heated through, about 5 minutes.
Spread the pimento cheese into the bottom of each hot dog bun and top with a cooked hot dog. Place two green tomato pieces alongside each hot dog. Drizzle with mustard, if desired. Serve immediately.
