GET YOUR INGREDIENTS READY
MAKE THE FRIED GREEN TOMATOES
Get out three bowls. In the first, crack the eggs and add milk and beat together. In the second bowl add the flour. In the last bowl add the panko crumbs, cheese, and seasonings.
Dip each of the tomato slices in the flour first and coat evenly then dip into the egg mixture evenly and lastly into the panko crumb. Place on a plate and repeat for all the sliced tomatoes.
Heat a large skillet pan to med high and add butter and oil enough to cover the bottom completely to get the crumbs coated so they brown nicely.
Add the tomatoes. When the tomatoes are nicely browned on one side flip and add a little more oil and butter mixture till the other side is nicely brown. Remove with a flipper and set aside.
MAKE YOUR SANDWICHES
You can either toast your bread and then butter it, or butter it on the outside pieces and grill in a hot pan for a few mins on each side. We love it done in a pan because it gets all crispy and delicious because of the butter.
Then put it all together. Add the balsamic mayo to both pieces of bread and then layer the insides on top.
We like bread, mayo, lettuce, green tomato, bacon, micro greens, mayo, bread. But you can do it however your little heart desires :) Enjoy!
