Ever since I moved to the South, I fell in love with Fried Green Tomatoes. Here is a fresher take on my recipe for Fried Green Tomatoes with Pimento Cheese Sauce. Definitely more “summertime” friendly. I can see adding a few pieces of crisp bacon and creating an upscale version of a BLT! Hmmm…that gives me an idea! Have fun making and eating these Fried Green Tomato Caprese Stacks.
This recipe will make three beautiful stacks…one per person is definitely enough…make more if you are entertaining a larger crowd, or make them mini version and place on skewers…I may have to do this in the future!
To get started, click here for my recipe for Fried Green Tomatoes. Prepare nine tomatoes according to the recipe. You will not believe how beautifully the breading adheres to the tomatoes…be sure to follow all of the steps…it is very important that after you slice the tomatoes…you allow them to release a bit of their water content on paper towels…do NOT leave out this step or you may end up with very soggy tomatoes!
As the tomatoes are frying, prepare the balsamic glaze (reduction). In a pot, on medium heat, add the balsamic vinegar and brown sugar. Allow to cook until a thick glaze forms. Be sure to stir often, so as not to burn.
Once you have prepared your tomatoes…be sure to salt as soon as they are finished frying…lay one tomato down…top with a slice or two of fresh mozzarella cheese (this will depend on how big the tomatoes are). Top the cheese with a fresh basil leaf…add another slice of tomato on top of the basil…cheese…basil…then the final slice of fried green tomato!
Serve these Fried Green Tomato Caprese Stacks alone, or with a drizzle of the balsamic glaze…makes the perfect side dish! ENJOY!!!

I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! Most importantly, I love my Family (my Hubby and my Fur Babies). My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him!
Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth! This broth is super rich in nutrients and will provide your pet with a multitude of health benefits!
