Do you love fried green tomatoes? They can be really good if prepared correctly, or really bad if they’re not. I have the easiest recipe for perfectly seasoned and fried green tomatoes on my site, and it was my inspiration for a Fried Green Tomato Ham Club Sandwich with an avocado mayonnaise.
Fried green tomatoes are a southern staple; every family has their own method of preparing them. My great grandmother, grandmother, and mother each made their own slightly different version, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that I make a version slightly different than each of them. You can find the complete recipe here, just pay attention to small details. The thickness of the tomato slices, salting the tomatoes to pull out excess water, seasoning, and frying temperature can all greatly affect the outcome of the recipe. Like I said previously, when made properly they’re delicious.
You’ll need a few ingredients to assemble your Fried Green Tomato Ham Club Sandwich:
Mash one small avocado in a small bowl and add two tablespoons Hellman’s® Real Mayonnaise, and mix well. I found a new bread at my local Walmart, it’s called Pepperidge Farm® Harvest Blends® Sprouted. I’ll leave the decision to toast your bread up to you, but the sandwich holds together better when the bread is toasted.
Apply a heaping spoonful of the avocado mayonnaise to one side of a bread slice. Add a few slices of fried green tomatoes, bacon, and Hillshire Farm® Thin Sliced Honey Ham to the sandwich, and top with remaining slice of bread.
Jeremy enjoyed this sandwich so much, I had to make him a second one.
One of the key components to making a delicious sandwich is using a quality bread such as Pepperidge Farm®. I like the Pepperidge Farm® Hearty White or Oatmeal, and Harvest Blends® Sprouted. It’s like getting bakery fresh bread without an added trip to a bakery, and it stays fresher due to the double wrapping. Adding avocado to Hellmann’s® Real Mayonnaise really compliments the flavors of the sandwich, and it also makes a nice dipping sauce for fried green tomatoes. The Hillshire Farm® Thin Sliced Honey Ham is slow roasted for hours and it helps to make any sandwich a little more tasty.
You can find all of these products at your local Walmart.
