2 cups self-rising flour
3 tablespoons Cajun seasoning
2 cups canola oil
3 large green tomatoes, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices

9 slices bacon
3 center split deli rolls
6 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 ripe avocado, sliced
1 1/2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
Hot sauce (optional)


1. Combine flour and Cajun seasoning in a shallow dish.

2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat to 360°. Dip tomato slices in buttermilk, and dredge in flour mixture. Fry tomatoes, in batches, 2 minutes on each side or until golden. Drain on a wire rack over paper towels; set aside.

4. Split rolls, and arrange, split sides up, on a baking sheet. Broil 5 inches from heat 2 minutes or until lightly toasted; remove from oven.

5. Spread cut sides of rolls with mayonnaise; place fried green tomatoes on bottom roll halves. Top evenly with bacon, avocado, and lettuce; sprinkle with hot sauce, if desired. Top with remaining roll halves, and serve immediately.
