Fried Green Tomato Cheeseburger

Have you ever had a burger topped with a fried green tomato? No? You’re about to. Ok, so, if I haven’t shared with you, I have a burger fascination. I will find a reason/excuse to grill burgers. Even if I have just recently had one or if my husband may or may not be dieting.

Julie Grimes from Cooking Light inspired this post of mine – yes, she got my wheels churning. She recently shared her best-burger-she-ever-had-experience at Holeman and Finch in Atlanta – a house ground 50/50 brisket and chuck, which sounds amazing – I will be grinding some shit up later this week.

In the meantime, here’s my Mozzarella cheeseburger topped with a fried green tomato – oh, and remoulade sauce.  {see those Frito’s? – buy a big bag of them and dip them in cottage cheese!!!}
