Pickled Green Tomatoes - What do I do with them?

Bought a jar of these by mistake (Bubbies brand). Any ideas on how to use them in an interesting way?

  1. How strongly picked is the flavor? It could be a cool addition to a BLT. Or maybe a banh mi?

    1. I sometimes chop them up and add them to scrambled eggs. A wedge makes a nice garnish for a bloody mary. And I like them sliced with cheddar on a sandwich, grilled or not.

      1. I like them with Hamburgers. Tasty!

          I second the motion! In fact, I pickle green tomatoes at the end of the growing season each autumn. The pickling solution that I concoct is generally used for bread and butter pickled cucumbers. Pickling the green tomatoes just extends the harvest, and the tomatoes replace both ripe tomato slices and pickle relish for hamburgers.

        2. My experience with these things stops at a good pastrami or corned beef sandwich, but I'm interested in the ideas coming out here. Anything you'd put pickles on or in is a good place to start. I'm wondering what they'd be like fried.

          1. I cant keep them around long enough to actually make something with them. I end up eating them all straight out of the jar, they are DELICIOUS!
