  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 2 eggs, beaten

Pimento Cheese

  • See the link above for the recipe.


Pimento Cheese

  1. See the link above for the recipe.


  1. heat oil in a large skillet (or if you have a small deep fryer, that works too!) until temperature reaches around 350 degrees. if using a skillet, just remember, oil should be about half the height of the tomato slices so you can flip them.
  2. combine flour, paprika, garlic and salt and pepper in a large bowl. beat the eggs and start by dipping the tomato slices in egg first, then the flour mixture. shake off any extreme excess flour and then place (carefully) into the oil. let bubble and fry for about 1-2 minutes per side until golden brown. transfer to a paper towel lined baking sheet and sprinkle some salt.
  3. let the tomatoes cool slightly and stack with layers of pimento cheese in between and. then. dig. in.
