A terrific Southern twist on the classic BLT. The tang and crunch of the fried green tomato gives a wonderful balance to the bacon, lettuce, and mayo. For a crowd, increase the ingredients and put out the cooked bacon, lettuce leaves, and fried green tomatoes separately... and, let everyone build their own sandwiches. Great football fare!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Season slices of green tomato with salt and pepper. Dredge in the cornmeal. Heat the oil in a skillet. Fry the tomatoes until crisp and golden on both sides. Remove from pan and place on paper towel-lined plate to absorb any excess oil.
  2. Spread the mayonnaise on the toasted bread (both slices, if you like.) Add the lettuce, the fried green tomatoes and cooked bacon.
  3. Build your sandwich and cut in half.
