Yield: Serves 2
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 16 minutes
Total Time: 26 minutes

For Fried Tomatoes
⅓ cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs, beaten
⅔ cup Kikkoman® Sriracha Panko or Kikkoman® Coconut Panko
½ teaspoon dried thyme
⅛ teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon sea salt 
½ cup avocado oil or any neutral vegetable oil
1 large beefsteak tomato, sliced into 4 slices about ½ inch thick

4 slices bread, toasted if desired
4 fried tomatoes
2 pieces of leafy lettuce
4 strips cooked bacon
4 tablespoons mayonnaise


  1. Add flour to a bowl, add eggs to a separate bowl and beat well. Add panko breadcrumbs, thyme, garlic powder and salt to a 3rd bowl.
  2. Coat each slice of tomato in flour completely. Then dunk in egg and coat in panko mixture. Set onto a plate.
  3. Heat oil in a non-stick pan over medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes. Add 2 slices of tomato at a time and fry for 3-4 minutes on each side. Repeat with remaining slices of tomato. Set fried tomato slices on a paper towel lined plate to soak up any oil.
  4. To assemble each sandwich, spread 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise on each piece of bread and top with 2 fried tomatoes, lettuce, and bacon. Enjoy right away.
