So, I’ve been wanting to make this super fantastic dessert forever. But it looked too awesome and spectacular to make just for fun. It was a mixture of cookie batter, Oreos, and brownie batter all topped with ice cream and hot fudge. It looked so rich and intense we wanted to thoroughly enjoy it. So we invited our friends over for what we called a food-porn dinner. The main event would be the dessert, but we needed a meal to go with it, but not outshine it.
Aya came across this burger recipe and insisted we try it. The bottom layer was thousand island dressing, then the burger pattie, then pepper jack cheese, fried green tomato, then topped with bacon (we used turkey bacon to lighten it up to save more room for dessert). Wow, what a blend of flavors and textures. And then the baked avocado fries as a side were a nice change from fries or sweet potato wedges. Light and crispy. Light enough to leave room for the main event! Ultimate Chocolate Chip n’ Oreo Fudge Brownie Bars!
One thought on “Fried Green Tomato Burgers w/ Avocado Fries”
So, so, so, SO good. LOTS of flavor in the burger. I think the pepperjack cheese rounded up everything nicely too. So yeah, Paula Dean, NOT the healthiest…so in our defense, we used turkey bacon, pan fried the tomato instead of deep frying it, and Foreman’d the patties to cut the grease. If you’re a fan of fried green tomatoes, you HAVE to try this. I even think an additon of a fried egg to this burger would be delicious too.(now I’m talking Southern)
And the avocado fries? Need I say more? HELLO. The breading process was a pain, but it was amazing how it came out crispy crunchy on the outside out of the oven.
