As the summer comes to an end, I am getting in as many fried green tomatoes as I can.  One of my favorite ways to eat them is in a sandwich.  There is just something about all that mayonnaise, a generous sprinkle of salt and pepper sandwiched between to pieces of bread, even toasted.  So good!

My favorite sandwich is a BLT.  And my personal favorite way to eat a BLT is in the style of a club sandwich, epic!  

When I was a little girl, we lived in Columbia, South America.  My Dad worked for Shell Oil Company, and we were part of 100 Americans who worked and lived in a little town in Columbia.  

One of the places we would come together, and fellowship was in a country club setting as you see here in American. 

The country club is where our school was during the day, church on Sunday, and on the weekends the movie theater.  In the restaurant, they served the most delicious club sandwich.

Fried Green Tomatoes present an excellent spin on an already fabulous BLT sandwich.  The method of how to stack the sandwich is a big deal.  

First thing for the sandwich, you will need three pieces of white sandwich bread toast.  If you prefer wheat or whole grain bread, that is fine too.  I want to create the same sandwich I use to eat as a little girl, so I am using the white sandwich bread.  

Secondly, comes the bacon.  I start off by baking the bacon in the oven until it is perfectly crispy.  Remove it from the pan and place on a sheet pan lined with paper towels.  

Thirdly comes to the tomatoes.  In this BLT, the tomatoes take center stage over the bacon in the club sandwich.  I begin frying the green tomatoes while the bacon is cooling.  It takes no time to fry the green tomatoes, and the sandwich comes together quickly.

As I have said before, I like the slightly pink green tomatoes.  These are the ones that are still really firm but have a cast of pink color.  The slightly green tomatoes are sweeter and not so sour as the dense green tomatoes.

Now all the components of this sandwich are ready its time to assemble the Fried Green Tomato BLT Club Sandwich. 

While club sandwiches can be single layers, I like to make the double-decker club sandwich like we use to eat in South America. 

How to assemble the Fried Green Tomato BLT Club Sandwich:
  • Toast 3 slices of white sandwich bread.
  • Arrange the 3 pieces of toast in a row. 
  • Spread one tablespoon mayonnaise on the top of two pieces of toast and spread one tablespoon of mayonnaise on top and bottom (both sides) of one piece of toast.
  • Place a piece of iceberg lettuce on top of the first piece of toast with mayonnaise side up.
  • Place one thick slice of ripe beefsteak tomato on top of iceberg lettuce, season generously with salt and pepper
  • Place two slices of crispy bacon cut in half on top of the ripe tomato.
  • Place piece of toast with mayonnaise on both sides on top of the crispy bacon.
  • Place piece of iceberg lettuce on top toast with mayonnaise.
  • Place a thick slice of fried green tomato on top iceberg lettuce.
  • Place two slices of crispy bacon cut in half on top of the fried green tomato.
  • Place the last piece of toast with mayonnaise side down on top of the fried green tomato.

To cut the Fried Green Tomato BLT Club Sandwich:

  • Pin the sandwich layers together with 4 toothpicks or cocktail swords through the top piece of toast, in four places in a diamond-like pattern, all the way to the bottom piece of toast.
