Fried Green Tomato Sandwich with Home Grown Classic Pimento Cheese

Kevin Clark, Home grown Owner and Chef
Chunky, flavorful, and crafted with fresh, all-natural ingredients, Home grown Pimento Cheese is the perfect spread for this fried green tomato sandwich.


  • Flour for dredging
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs
  • ⅓ cup cornmeal
  • ⅓ cup grated parmesan
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • Ground black pepper to taste
  • Canola oil for frying
  • 4 to 5 green tomatoes halved and cut into ½-inch slices
  • Home grown Pimento Cheese to taste
  • 8 slices Texas toast
  • 6 slices cooked bacon


  • Add flour to a shallow dish. In another shallow dish, lightly beat eggs. In a third shallow dish, combine breadcrumbs, cornmeal, and parmesan. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Heat ¼-inch to ½-inch of oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Dip a tomato slice in flour, then eggs, then the breadcrumb mixture. Add to hot oil. Continue with about a quarter of the tomato slices. Cook until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip tomatoes to cook other side until golden brown. Transfer tomatoes to a paper towel–lined plate. Repeat until all of the tomatoes are cooked.
  • Meanwhile, warm pimento cheese until melted. Stir to incorporate.
  • Toast bread. Spread equal amounts of warmed pimento cheese on each slice of bread. Top 4 bread slices with a few slices of fried green tomato and 1½ slices of bacon. Top with another piece of bread, cheese side down.

Former school teacher Lisa Spooner and renowned fine dining chef Kevin Clark opened Home grown in Reynoldstown, Ga., a vibrant community in Atlanta. Their quaint restaurant offers a welcome bright spot that blooms brightly on Memorial Drive. This favorite neighborhood hangout not only brightens the landscape, it also brightens the bellies of everyone in the community. After winning the Meltdown at the Atlanta Cheese Fest three years in a row, Kevin and Lisa have decided to package and sell their award winning pimento cheese. Straight from the Home grown kitchen to yours, the Classic and Jalapeño Pimento Cheese flavors are handcrafted recipes just like Kevin and Lisa’s famous Atlanta dishes.
