Fried Green Tomato BLT Sandwiches

A classic sandwich goes Southern. Fried Green Tomato BLT Sandwiches are a decadent and delicious lunch or dinner.

Fried Green Tomato BLT Sandwiches

When the weather warms up we gravitate toward eating sandwiches more. The combinations are nearly endless and they normally don’t take a whole lot of time to cook.

When Sarah announced that this month’s Fantastical Food Fight was BLTs I got excited. I love bacon sandwiches even without lettuce or tomatoes. This sandwich is inspired by one I saw on a cooking show ages ago. So long ago I can’t remember which one for sure.

This does take a bit longer than the usual sandwich but the end result is well worth the extra work. I used homemade fried green tomatoes and spicy Cajun mayo but you could use the frozen green tomatoes and regular mayo.

I also made another change to the classic BLT. Instead of iceberg lettuce this sandwich has romaine for a very important reason. Not a single one of the grocery stores in my town had a decent head of iceberg. If you have iceberg I think it would taste just as good on the Fried Green Tomato BLT Sandwiches.
