Beef and bourbon - sounds like a Southern match made in heaven! The alcohol adds a nice level of spice that's sweetened up into a glaze by simmering it with brown sugar. Get the recipe here.

Fried green tomatoes burger
If you're from the South, you probably know all about fried green tomatoes. They have this incredibly tangy flavor that's perfectly accentuated by the crunchy, fried texture. They make an incredible BLT and sometimes I think I like them better than ripened tomatoes! In the recipe below, we took a few green tomatoes from the garden and slapped them on a burger. The result was absolutely phenomenal. Get the recipe here.
