fried green tomato stack with pimento cheese

“Splurge once a week (or every other week)” say so many of my friends and family who, like me, are constantly working on losing weight!  And you’ll enjoy that big splurge when you indulge yourself with these Fried Green Tomato Stacks with Jalapeno Pimento Cheese1

When it comes to food, splurging is just not very hard for me to figure how to do!  And undoubtedly, this recipe will make sure that anyone’s weight-loss efforts will come to a screeching halt when this little devil of an appetizer is prepared and devoured in wild abandon!  If you love pimento cheese and/or if you love fried green tomatoes, you won’t be able to practice restraint!

This is insanely, ridiculously delicious!

Please don’t hate me!

Here’s how I came to making these Fried Green Tomato Stacks:  Our youngest son gave my husband and me birthday gift certificates to the only decent restaurant in this tiny town that we live in.  The menu changes daily and there listed among the appetizers on the night we selected, was this cheesy Southern creation:

I had to re-create this appetizer at home!

And what I put together lived up to the same level of crazy-goodness that we enjoyed for our birthday dinner — and was actually better!

 I’ll just de-tox and get back on track with my diet tomorrow (I’ve lost 26 pounds)!

To make these cheesy stacks, simply follow my recipe for Fried Green Tomatoes and stack them up while hot and then spread your favorite pimento cheese in between each fried tomato.  Garnish each stack with some fresh sprigs of Italian Parsley.

I use a Jalapeño Pimento Cheese that is locally made in South Carolina from “Palmetto Cheese – The Pimento Cheese with Soul”.  This young company is getting a lot of attention as word-of-mouth about this crazy-good stuff travels.  Here’s the link where you can locate a store near you or to ship directly to you:   Palmetto Cheese  My daughter can buy it in Tennessee now and keeps a tub in her frig at all times . . . perfect to dip mini carrots or celery sticks into . . . or there’s always the classic lathering between two layers of bread to get your fix!

(I’m not getting paid a penny for mentioning this product at all . . . just sharing my favorite brand with all of you.  I wish the company would send me a truck-load of this cheese, but I bet they’d get a big chuckle out of that wish!  Hey, maybe if you get some and you’re asked where you heard about it, mention me and then they might send me some!  What do you think? )
