  • Cooking Time 15 minutes
  • Yield 2 servings
  • Scallion Waffles
  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 tablespoons Yellow Cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ½ cup Unsalted Butter, melted
  • 2 cups Buttermilk
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 cup finely chopped Scallion
  • Oil, for greasing waffle iron
  • Tomato ''Cream''
  • 1 pint ripe Cherry or Grape Tomatoes
  • ½ cup Canola or Grapeseed oil
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Poached Eggs with Peameal
  • 8 slices Peameal Bacon, cooked
  • 1 tablespoon White Vinegar
  • 8 large Eggs
  1. Scallion Waffles:
  2. Stir flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda and salt to combine
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk melted butter, buttermilk and egg. Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture and stir just until blended. Stir in scallions
  4. Preheat a waffle iron and lightly grease. Make waffles according to manufacturer's instructions (about 1/3 cup batter for a standard waffle) and keep warm in a 250°F oven until ready to serve
  1. Tomato ''Cream'':
  2. Wash and place tomatoes in a jar and puree finely with an immersion blender. While blending, gradually pour in oil (mixture will emulsify and look like a tomato "mayo")
  3. Strain sauce through a sieve, season to taste and chill until ready to serve
  1. Poached Eggs with Peameal:
  2. Keep peameal warm while preparing eggs
  3. To poach eggs, fill a pot with 4 L water, add vinegar and bring to just below a simmer
  4. Break an egg into a cup. Stir water to create a "whirlpool" in the center. Drop egg just to the side of the center (water should still be moving) and cook egg until set on the outside, but yolk still visibly soft (for "easy"), about 4 minutes
  5. Eggs can be cooked 2 or 3 at a time. Remove eggs with a slotted spoon
  1. To Assemble:
  2. Place 2 waffles on a plate and arrange a slice of peameal on each. Top with poached eggs and spoon tomato cream over
  3. Serve immediately
