IN A LARGE BOWL, MIX TOGETHER ALL INGREDIENTS. REFRIGERATE UNTIL READY TO USE.FOR THE CAJUN SAUCE
  1. Whisk all ingredients together and add to a squeeze bottle if you wish. Refrigerate until ready to use.
FOR THE SLAW
  1. In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. Cut each slice of bacon in half. Heat medium-large fry pan over medium-high heat, and add bacon in batches. Cook until crispy and move to paper towels. I had two or three batches.
FOR THE TOMATOES
  1. Dry tomato slices with paper towels or kitchen towels, lay out slices on a cooling rack, and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Set out three shallow pans. In the first, add the flour. In the second, whisk together eggs and buttermilk (or milk). In the third, add panko, salt, and pepper.
  3. With tongs (or your hands), coat each tomato slice first in the flour, then the egg mixture, and finally in the panko.
  4. Drain any excess bacon grease from your pan (if you wish). Fill your pan or saute pan with 1 ½ - 2 inches of oil. Heat oil to 350-375 degrees F. Fry each battered tomato slice in the hot oil for 1-2 minutes per side. Fry about 3-4 at a time, just make sure to not crowd the pan.
  5. Move to a cooling rack over some paper towels, and repeat with the remaining slices.
  6. To assemble: Drizzle or smear sauce on bottom slider bun, add a fried tomato slice. Top with slaw and 2 half-bacon slices. ENJOY.
