Directions

Corn Cakes

1In a Large Bowl, Whisk together the flour, cornmeal, baking soda, salt and pepper, add the corn, peppers, shallots and garlic to the dry ingredients and mix until combined.

2Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add oil. Use a 1/3 cup measure and scoop corn cake batter into the oil, leaving about an inch in between each corn cake. Cook until the cake begin to set and bubble on the top, about 3 to 4 inches minutes. Gently flip and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Remove the cork cakes with a spatula and place on a plate for baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining batter.

3Note: I fry the bacon beforehand and set it aside (you can fry the corn cake in the bacon grease) and heat the water for the poached eggs while the corn cakes are cooking.

Avocado Hollandaise

1Add the avocado, lemon juice and hot water into a food processor or high powdered blender and blend until smooth, scraping down the sides if needed. With the processor running, stream in the olive oil slowly. Continue to blend until pureed and smooth.

2Poach the eggs and assembled the corn cake, Break a piece of bacon and set it on top of the corn cake and cover with poached egg. Pour the avocado hollandaise overtop and sprinkle on some crushed red pepper. Top it off with some fresh herbs if desired.
