Grown Up BLT

It seems we are all grown up now. Being a cheesemonger requires passion, cheese nerdery and math skills. Dairymaids can easily tell you how many ounces are in a pound and how much cheese equals 1/2 cup shredded. As the Dairymaids expand and grow, so do our cheesemongering abilities! Come by and check out our new and improved digs and get all the ingredients you'll need for this fancy BLT.

1 loaf Slow Dough sourdough, sliced 
1 package La Quercia Prosciutto
1 4 oz package Purple Haze goat cheese 
4 green tomatoes 
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup flour 
Canola oil 
Salt & pepper, to taste
1 bunch Baby Kale
1 Lemon

To prepare fried green tomatoes: slice tomatoes into 1/4 inch slices. Whisk egg with milk, set aside. Season the flour with salt and pepper to taste. Heat enough canola oil to cover the bottom of shallow pan. Dread each tomato slice in egg mixture and then flour. Fry tomatoes in oil over medium - high heat. Remove when golden brown and place of paper towel to strain. Toss baby kale lightly in olive oil and lemon juice. To assemble sandwich: spread Purple Haze onto lightly toasted bread. Stack a few slices of prosciutto, fried green tomatoes and kale. 

Makes 4 sandwiches
