- 2 ea. bacon slices, cooked and chopped into 1-2 in. pieces
- 1 ea. egg
- 1 ea. medium green tomato
- 1/2 ea. Avocados From Mexico
- 1/4 c. yellow corn meal
- 1/4 c. milk
- 1/4 c. vegetable oil

- In a bowl, mix the egg and milk together, add a pinch of salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
- Mix the yellow corn meal and the 1/8 cup of all-purpose flour in a separate bowl. Set aside.

- Heat the oil in a heavy skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Once the oil is very hot, place the tomato slices into the skillet. Cook for 2-4 minutes on each side, ensuring that the tomato slices are crispy and golden. Remove the tomatoes from the oil and place them on a plate that has been lined with a paper towel to absorb excess oil.
