“Almost makes me wish I grew up in the South. Think these would make great BLTs on toasted sourdough bread. Might try the BLT with a little pesto or basil mayo too. This is to the best of my memory how Granny does them and how I now do it. I added the Creole Seasoning. I like to fry them in bacon grease when I can. You could also serve them with a chiffenade of fresh basil and crumbled feta or goat cheese. For a homey meal, consider serving with mac n’ cheese or how about with some spicy grilled shrimp. I might try serving with my Coriander Mint Chutney or Cucumber Raita.”
