I posted a photo on Facebook and Twitter showing some sliced green tomatoes, flour, milk and panko with the caption “Guess what I am making” It didn’t take long for people to guess fried green tomatoes. And while those of you that guessed that were right, I was making fried green tomatoes, you probably assumed that was it. Ohhhh but it wasn’t my friends. Not at all. I had more things in store for those beauties. More things like this glorious burger.
If you’ve been following the blog for the past couple of weeks then you already know that I have a ton of green tomatoes in my garden that I need to figure out a use for. Over the past month or so I have found a few different ways like making a salsa with them or making this spicy relish, but in truth, there is not much better than a perfectly crisp fried green tomato. Whether you dip them in bacon ranch, make a grilled cheese sandwich with them or sandwich mozzarella in between two of them, fried green tomatoes are down right delicious. But when you take a perfectly crispy fried green tomato and place it on top of a burger with lettuce and a cajun mayo, well in the words of Uncle Jesse, have mercy.
