50 States of MoFo: Georgia: The Grant Stack
I am lucky to regularly spend time in Atlanta, which is a wonderful food town. One of my favorite places is Homegrown on Memorial. They have a number of vegan options and are always gracious regarding requests. How can you not love a restaurant which serves Vegan Sloppy Joes with sliced peaches in them?
I've been intrigued by a non-vegan item on the menu, the Grant Stack: a sandwich named for Grant Henry, fabulous artist and owner of Sister's Louisa's Church of the Living Room and Ping-Pong Emporium. The Grant Stack is a pile of Southern food: pimiento cheese, bacon, and fried green tomatoes on Texas Toast. How could I let this pass me by?
For the pimiento cheese, bacon, and fried green tomatoes, I used recipes from Bianca Phillips' wonderful new book, Cookin' Crunk: Eating Vegan in the Dirty South. The Texas Toast is the English Muffin Toasting Bread I mentioned yesterday, sliced thick, brushed with a mixture of vegan margarine, garlic, salt, and pepper, and grilled.
The Grant Stack is far from healthy, but you will feel so satisfied with life that you will not care!
