Fried Green Tomato Breakfast Stacks

So yesterday was National Donut Day. Did you eat one? I definitely had a warm Krispy Kreme to celebrate. But let's be honest. Donuts are not real breakfast. I'm not saying that breakfast has to be healthy, but something that doesn't induce a mid-morning sugar crash would be ideal. You know. Like bacon and eggs. Add a delicious fried tomato and you have yourself a real meal to start your day.

What You'll Need:
(per stack, multiply accordingly)
2 slices thick cut bacon
2 large eggs
3 slices green tomato
Oil for frying (peanut is my fave)
Salt + Red pepper

What to Do:
This one's pretty easy folks. Crisp the bacon. Personally, I like to use a foil-lined pan in the oven for about 15 minutes. Fry the eggs how you like. Over medium or hard is best. These get messy if your eggs are runny. 

Now, for the tomatos, coat with buttermilk and dredge in corn meal. Add salt and pepper either at the end or to your cornmeal for an extra bite. Fry until golden brown, a few minutes on each side. 

To assemble, start with a tomato, add an egg then bacon. Repeat if desired. You could sandwich these between some crusty bread slices too. I also think these would be nice with a little avocado on top. You have no excuse to skip breakfast now :)
