ingredients

3 large firm green tomatoes
salt
2 cups vegetable or peanut oil, for deep-frying
1 cup buttermilk
2 cups self-rising flour
6 slices bacon, cut in half and cooked until crisp
6 eggs, poached

Hollandaise Sauce

2 egg yolks
4 tablespoons cream
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 pinch salt
1 pinch sugar
chicken broth, optional
1 tablespoon white vinegar

directions

Slice the tomatoes 1/4-inch thick. Lay them out in a shallow baking pan and sprinkle with salt. Place the tomato slices in a colander and allow time for the salt to pull the water out of the tomatoes, approximately 30 minutes.

In a skillet, heat the oil for deep-frying over medium high heat. Dip the tomatoes into buttermilk, then dredge them in flour. Deep-fry until golden brown. Keep warm.

Meanwhile, prepare Hollandaise Sauce.

To assemble each serving, place 2 fried tomatoes on a plate. Top with 2 strips of cooked bacon in a criss-cross fashion. Top bacon with a poached egg, spoon on Hollandaise Sauce.

Hollandaise Sauce: Combine all ingredients in the top of a double boiler, over boiling water. Stir until thick, approximately 3 minutes; set aside until ready to use. Do not reheat or cover the pot. Thin, if needed with a little chicken broth. Stir in the vinegar.
