Fried Green Tomato and Bacon Sandwich

People beg me to make these sandwiches. It's a great way to use extra tomatoes from your garden. Some grocery stores carry green tomatoes year round. This is my very favorite sandwich ever. The fresh mozzarella cheese can be substituted with regular mozzarella but it won't be a yummy! You can also use Tempeh Bacon for a vegetarian version (not vegan).

This is one fantastic sandwich! The bread was recipe #140421 and for the cornmeal, recipe #167160. The tomatoes were fresh from my garden. I reduced the amount of bacon to 2 thick slices per sandwich and even with that this sandwich is a handful but delicious. Thanks for posting and for pointing me in the direction of this wonderful creation.
