Ingredients
  

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 4 slices bacon cut in half
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 2 medium green tomatoes cut into 1/4 inch slices
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 ground beef patties
  • lettuce
  • 4 hamburger buns

Instructions
 

  • In a bowl combine mayonnaise, sour cream, cajun seasoning, vinegar and Dijon mustard. Chill until burgers are finished.
  • Cook bacon in a pan over medium heat. Transfer to a plate. Reserve pan drippings. Remove from heat while you prep the tomatoes.
  • Place the flour on a plate. Whisk the egg and milk together in a bowl. Place panko bread crumbs on another plate.
  • Season the green tomatoes with salt and pepper on both sides. Dredge the tomatoes in the flour. Then dip in the egg/milk wash then dredge in the panko bread crumbs. Repeat until all tomatoes are coated.
  • Return the pan with bacon drippings to the heat. Drop a couple panko bread crumbs in, if they sizzle then it's ready to go. Fry the tomatoes 2 - 3 minutes per side or until golden brown. Transfer to a plate. Cover to keep warm.
  • In the same pan, cook the hamburger patties. You can also grill them if you prefer.
  • Turn on the oven broiler and broil hamburger buns 1 minute or until golden.
  • Spread cajun mayonnaise over the top bun. Place lettuce on the bottom bun. Top with ground beef patties. Top each burger with a couple slices of bacon and 2 fried green tomatoes. Serve.
