In a small bowl, mix the mayonnaise, lime zest, lime juice, thyme, and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper.
Refrigerate the mayonnaise mixture until time to serve.
In a shallow bowl, place the flour.
In a second shallow bowl, place the egg whites.
In a third shallow bowl, mix the cornmeal, salt, and the remaining pepper.
Cut the green and red tomatoes crosswise into 4 slices each.
Dredge 1 slice at a time in the flour to lightly coat; shake off the excess.
Dip each tomato in the egg whites, then in the cornmeal mixture.
Repeat with the remaining tomato slices.
In a large nonstick skillet, heat the canola oil over medium heat.
In batches, cook the cornmeal-coated tomatoes until golden brown, about 4-6 minutes per side.
In the same skillet, lightly brown the bacon on both sides.
Prepare each stack with 1 green tomato slice, 2 pieces of bacon, and 1 red tomato slice.
Serve with the mayonnaise sauce.
