Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, plus more for deep frying
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 1 green tomato, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 slices provolone
  • Mayonnaise, for spreading
  • 4 seeded hamburger buns, buttered and toasted
  • Iceberg lettuce, for serving
Directions
  • Preheat a deep fryer with canola oil to 375 degrees F. You can also use a cast-iron skillet filled halfway with canola oil.

  • In a skillet set over medium heat, cook the bacon until crispy, about 10 minutes.

  • In a shallow dish, add the flour and season with some salt and pepper. In a second shallow dish, add the eggs and lightly beat. Dredge the tomato slices in the flour then in the eggs and again in the flour.

  • Fry the battered green tomato slices until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • In a large skillet set over medium heat, add a tablespoon of the canola oil. Add the fried green tomatoes to the skillet, stacked 2 high. Cover the stack with 2 pieces of the cheese and let melt, about a minute. Repeat with the remaining stacks of tomatoes and cheese, adding another tablespoon of oil halfway through.

  • Spread some mayonnaise onto both sides of a bun and layer with a stack of fried green tomatoes covered with melted cheese, 2 slices of crispy bacon, lettuce and top with top of the bun. Repeat for the remaining buns and tomato stacks, and then serve hot.
